About the show

“The Dancers” is a world celebration of dance and its diversity combining the pounding steps of Irish and Tap, the graceful beauty of Ballet, the visual, rhythmic classical Indian Kathak, the passion of Flamenco, the excitement of Breakdance, the elegance of Ballroom and smoking red-hot Salsa and the traditional spiritual dances of ancient Indigenous Australia.

From Executive Producers, Bonnie Lythgoe (So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, Oz Panto) and Ethan Walker (Alice in Wonderland, Jesus Christ Superstar), “The Dancers” fuses a never-before seen lineup of the world's most highly-awarded dancers, hailing from the United States, the UK, Ireland, Spain, India, Russia, Chile, Argentina and Australia.

“The Dancers” combines a powerful original music score by award winning composer Evan Jolly (Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Crown) with explosive choreography by Australia's very own Kelley Abbey (So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with the Stars, Hugh Jackman's The Boy from Oz).

Exclusive to Melbourne for a strictly limited season!
