QL2 Centre for Youth Dance in association with Fresh Funk bring two top interstate dance artists to Canberra, to inspire and challenge boys and young men (ages 14–26) to improve their dance.
Due to the popularity and success of our first Kick Back program, QL2 will be running a second Kick Back series in August and September. Marko Panzic and Daniel Riley McKinley are returning to Canberra to present more energetic, physical, boys-only dance.
Each workshop will be longer — 3 hours — so you can get even more from the visiting choreographers.
Ex-Canberra Daniel Riley McKinley (Bangarra Dance Theatre), will extend your dancing with energetic physical theatre and contemporary dance in week one. Daniel has been involved in dance since the age of 9, and was a performer and member of Quantum Leap between the years 1998 and 2003. Daniel then went on to attend Queensland University of Technology, where he studied his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. In 2005, He has toured with Leigh Warren and Dancers later toured to the Indigenous dance festival 'The Dreaming', in Woodford, QLD. Daniel joined Bangarra in 2007, performing in Clan at the Glen Street Theatre and in True Stories around the country.
Marko Panzic, performer and choreographer, has worked and trained in New York, Los Angeles, London and Australia. He has performed for Australian recording artists including Jade MacRae, Che’nelle, Cosimo DeVito and Vanessa Amorosi. He is a choreographer in the second series So You Think You Can Dance Australia, and will bring his well-known blend of hip hop and contemporary dance to week two of Kick Back.
Local hip hop specialists Geza Szanto and Caroline Wall from Fresh Funk will be joined by Ruth Osborne from QL2 in weeks 3 & 4 to consolidate the material from Marko and Rowan, and present an informal performance in week 4.
