Swagamama are 6 friends from different dance, music and visual arts backgrounds who teamed up to form an elite competition dance crew. Since coming together they have been fortunate enough to win every dance competition they have entered, against top dance crews from around Australia and New Zealand. The key to this success is an unusual variety of skills. Red Bull 2012 Australian Breakdance Champion Jacob Goodridge is joined by internationally renowned robot and animation specialists Chris Vitnell and Bryce Jarrett. They are joined by Queensland’s top popping and locking dancer and teacher Sheru Bharadwaja, as featured in the 2103 Southern Comfort national ad campaign. Acrobatics and flipping expert Mark Barber, and musician and sound designer Paul Tindle round out the crew. Despite being a relatively newly formed act, Swagagmama’s notoriety as a performance troope has arisen because of their use of theatrical narrative, musical comedy and spectacular tricks in combination with high level dance skills.
