Anthony Ikin to choreograph new ‘Manpower’ in Vegas
International choreographer and dancer Anthony Ikin has headed to Las Vegas to be the new Choreographer for Manpower Australia at the Excalibur Resort & Casino from April 27 to May 9, 2015.
With Ikin no stranger to the stage, a former World Aerobic Champion and a Choreographer for celebrities and shows such as Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy, Tina Arena, Kate Miller Heidke, So You Think You Can Dance AU, the Australian Olympic Gymnastics Team and major stage productions throughout Australia and Asia he is sure to transform this show into a high energy dance explosion, performing acrobatic moves in a mix of dance genres to crowd favourite tunes.
Hailing from the Gold Coast, Manpower Australia originally started as Australia’s Thunder Down Under and have been performing for women across the globe for almost two decades. The show is now branded as Manpower Australia in the US with a residency at the Excalibur Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Glitter Strip.
Ikin said: “Being an Aussie and from the Gold Coast, it was a no brainer for me to say yes to this gig and work on an all Australian show!”
With dynamic dancing and state of the art lighting, this fully choreographed 2-hour stage spectacular is a show that has wooed more than 10 million women in 15 countries and now with Ikin’s flare and skills being added to the show, it’s definitely not one to be missed.
“I’m excited to head to Vegas to take the Manpower show back to the grassroots of its heritage. When I’m choreographing routines from scratch, I love to immerse myself in the show for the entire duration of my time there. I’ll eat, sleep, breath the show until it’s right,” says Ikin.
Ikin’s schedule is non-stop, straight after Manpower he will return to the Sunshine Coast on May, 9 where he will begin choreographing the 50th Anniversary tour of The Great Moscow Circus.
