About the event
UNDRGRMD, which has played to packed houses at Kensington’s Revolt Artspace throughout 2012, is now making a HUGE return. Making its way to TRAK nightclub in Toorak. It is a 100% home-grown showcase that harnesses the energy of a nightclub with a creative edge: an 30 act, style bending showcase of Melbourne’s best dancer’s choreographers, DJs and performers.
The idea is simple but the result is electric: a night with all the energy of a club event that is both a party and a showcase for the best of Melbourne’s dance industry. “UNDRGRND has a dancehall feel with the best of Aussie talent, drawcard headline acts and most importantly – the opportunity for emerging talent to perform on stage in a professional atmosphere” Malek remarks.
And it’s back in 2016, bigger and better and most importantly, by popular demand. Executive Producer Paul Malek (So You Think you Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars, The Project, Dance Chat) comments on the success of UNDRGRND so far, Malek says “The reception has been mind- blowing. The audiences have been brilliant and the camaraderie is exactly what the dance industry should be; Pure and unrelenting dance celebration.”
Why should you sponsor?
UNDRGRND is a celebration of the Melbourne dance industry. We want this to be an open and loving event for everyone withing the industry and therefore need to make it as cost effective as possible. We dont want this event to break peoples budgets in order to showcase their talent. Allowing young artists the chance to perform infront of their entire industry is something very rare and we want to provide that for them. Your sponsorship would allow us to lower the entry price, sponsor dancers in wo may not have the opportunity for pure financial reasons, and just open this night up to as many people as possible.
The Melbourne dance industry is full of love and UNDRGRND is designed to put everyone together into a room and share that love of art. This is not a money making venture, but a night to give back and make the dance industry here in Melbourne feel united.
I am the new Producer of UNDRGRND, I have been a Dancer, Choreographer and Event Manager working in Melbourne for the past 6 years. I invest myself fully into the dance industry and when given the chance to come on as Producer for UNDRGRND, I was ecstatic. Paul Malek and Chris Curran, The original Producers of UNDRGRND, Will be staying on as Executive Producers and guiding me through the process as i give this event a fresh face and burst of new energy.
