Presented by Paul Hayman


Paul Hayman’s ‘Not Strictly Ballroom’ – The Story of Cloudland is one show not to be missed. This interactive show is one of a kind.

Cloudland was a Brisbane icon for over 40 years and was the social hub of the city during the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s. The stage setting for this production is a replica bandstand, identical to the one at Cloudland Ballroom, including the mural backdrop, neon archway and music stands. The dance floor in front of the stage is incorporated into the show and for the majority of the show is available to the audience for dancing, thus creating the illusion that they are dancing in front of the band as you would have done in Cloudland Ballroom.

Paul has created this unique “interactive” element to the show to give the audience a new and fresh show experience. The show itself incorporates the music, history, fashions and dance phases during Cloudland Ballrooms existence. It is structured as a chronological journey through the Ballroom’s history. This nostalgic element literally takes you back in time to when the ‘Weekend Dance’ was a big event and dancing to a live band was the norm.

The show took over 12 months to research and develop, and has been touring throughout South Eastern Queensland and throughout country and metropolitan NSW for the past 18 months to extremely positive reviews by audiences and venues alike. The musical repertoire was pieced together under consultation with Gary McDonald who was the musical director of Cloudland Ballroom 1970‐1974 and covers the music standards of the early years, the birth of Rock and Roll and some disco from the early 70’s.

The show has a cast of 20 including Kylie Wall ‐ Chorographer, a multi Australian & State Champion. Amateur and professional competitive ballroom dancers, some of whom are current World and National Champions and professional competitive Rock & Roll dancers. For the majority of the show, this cast of dancers, are available for the audience to dance with, or perhaps receive tips and pointers from. The show, unique in concept, also actively promotes the health benefits associated with regular social dancing.

Vocalist, compare and host, of the show is Paul Hayman. Paul’s faultless vocals capture the mood of each song perfectly and as a master of his craft, Paul’s presence on stage leaves audiences demanding to see him time and time again. Don’t miss out on a fantastic night of entertainment and dancing.
