CAPTAIN ROBBO – Adventure pants
After seven years perfecting her art as a screen printer and many more searching for printed leggings that were both beautiful and well made (she didn’t find them), Katy Robinson left her job and just started making leggings herself. In a studio somewhere in Melbourne, Captain Robbo and her the Adventure Pants were born.
A halfway point between stocking and trousers, Adventure Pants are hand printed by the Captain with locally sourced fabric and inks using sustainable work practices that make Adventure Pants as ethical as they are hot. Nail it looks-wise by day, sleep with peace of mind by night. Captain’s orders.

BAM BAM ASSASSINS
Hailing from the musical hub of Melbourne’s inner north, the Bam Bam Assassins have risen to the ranks as one of the city’s most exciting and refreshing dance act. A feast for your senses, the all-female crew deliver what has been dubbed as pure first class. Full of high energy pops, stops and bouncing moves, influenced by traditions and trends from all corners of the globe. With a keen sense of collaboration this crew is always aspiring to bring diversity into their performance, often drawing on the individual dance disciplines and training of each member.
Headed by choreographer Claudia Sangiori Dalimore with her flavoursome & unique blend of movement vocabulary. The crew have been performing together for the past 5 years, it’s members ranging between a 9 to 2 piece performance act. They come at you with full ammunition, from funky hula-hoops to riddim driven afro booty shaking, get ready to dance it up! What a bam bam!
Jungle City dancers formed at the end of 2012, after founder and director Cat Pwiti identified the need to create an avenue for her dedicated students to take their skills and passion for Dancehall dance to the next level. Since then the crew – made up of twelve aspiring Dancehall Queenz – have been perfecting their technique in dance and performance and have already graced the stages at a number of events around Melbourne. True to Dancehall style and culture the Jungle City dancers bring high energy, positive vibes and aim to spread their love of dance wherever they go.
SO FINE CREW
Under the instruction of Minx and representing Melbourne Dance Hub, So Fine Crew is a troupe of fierce honeys who are devoted to sharing their love of Reggaeton and it’s roots stemming from Dancehall and Reggae music. So Fine crew will take you on a journey using hard-hitting body isolations mixed through with sexy winds and rolls. These ladies have represented the Melbourne scene locally and on interstate stages.
