Dance: Performing, Composing, Appreciating.
English: Rhyme, Verse.
A is for Absolutely Anything you can imagine and Absolutely Anything can be interpreted in Dance. B is for Ballet, C is for Choreography and D is for Drama as Robin dances through to X, Y and Z.
The alphabet is cleverly used as a story line and each letter acts as a springboard to explore another avenue of dance. With plenty of letters to get through in fifty minutes the show certainly zips along.
Alpha Beat is a dance journey with humour and edge, that incorporates a good dollop of gymnastics, giving the show those extra visual and wow factors. It’s designed to enable older and younger students alike to engage and relate.
While the show certainly looks at many performance dance styles it also focuses on the important role dance plays in celebrating and socializing in Australian and other cultures. Dancing for one’s own enjoyment is certainly encouraged. Secondary to the exploration of dance in its many facets is the story of a child who wanted to dance and the adult she grew into.

Great! Very engaging for children when performing. Great to have audience participation. Robin was very loud and energetic. Worked well with students on stage when teaching them dance moves.
