Broadway & Beyond is Bringing the Razzle Dazzle to You!

Kelly Ayker’s ‘Company A’ Delivers True Musical Theatre Experience

Renowned choreographer and performer, Kelly Aykers is thrilled to announce the launch of Company A ⏤ a brand new all-Australian professional Broadway Dance Company that is set to take stages around the country by storm.

It all kicks off in 2019 with a regional Victorian tour of Broadway and Beyond – a show produced, directed and choreographed by Kelly which will combine the style and class of Broadway dance with a cutting edge twist that will take company performance to a whole new level.

Company A features twelve professional, technically-trained Broadway dancers and singers. It showcases all elements of a true Broadway production number as well as going beyond to incorporate lyrical/contemporary dance components. Broadway and Beyond is a show that harnesses the energy of the infamous ‘ten o’clock numbers’ that are a feature of professional Musical Theatre and are designed to get an audience on to their feet. It is a high energy, technical display of dance that will leave audiences exhilarated.

“I am extremely passionate about this show and the essence that I am creating. I believe this style of dance as an art form has been under-represented of late, so am excited to present a strong company of dancers that can bring it back to the forefront in its purest form,” said Kelly. 

“As a Victorian country girl originally, it is particularly important to me to support the regional areas and bring high-end Broadway dance to these region’s doorsteps. Over the years ,and even more so now, as director of a tertiary dance academy, it is clear that the country areas are a hotbed of technical dance talent and quality training.

“Our aim then is to entertain, inspire and show dancers, their families and anyone with a love for classic entertainment just why they fell in love with dance in the first place.”

The cast of 11 of this first production is Amy Browne, Bradley Lees, Claire Stubs, Connor Micallef, Emma Spencely, Gabrielle Mabilla, Joshua Gordon, Luke McConnell, Madeleine Magetti, Rachael Peters and Sebastian Johnston.
