All the right moves

A FEW weeks ago his troupe was performing on Broadway but last weekend 50 Warwick dancers were able to learn from internationally acclaimed artists Andrew Fee and Lucy Chambers right here in the Rose City.

The pair, from Brisbane-based Raw Dance Company, worked with the boys and girls from eight to 17 years, in several genres including jazz, tap, acrobatics, funk and hip hop.

"We conduct workshops with dance studios and schools (for non-dancers) all over," Mr Fee said

"We've had them as far away as Mt Isa.

"We've just returned from a five-week run of our show, Untapped, in New York - on Broadway, which was fantastic."

Mr Fee founded Raw Dance Company 13 years ago and the energetic, funky studio can claim credit for influencing many first-rate dancers, including Ms Chambers' brother, Jack Chambers, the inaugural winner of So You Think You Can Dance (Australia) in 2008.

This was the first time Killarney School of Dance has hosted such workshops in Warwick.

Usually Warwick-based students travel to the city to attend them.
