Most people would probably be a bit sceptical if they heard that a group of young men from Brisbane are making it big in tap dancing - but that is exactly what Raw Metal Dance Company are doing.  Raw Metal Dance Company is Australia's funkiest dance company.  They have a unique dance style that combines the fundamentals of tap with funk, hip-hop and acrobatics.

Funky Beats' "Back By Demand Tour", will start at the Nambour Civic Centre on Saturday 2nd October at 8pm.  Audiences will be treated to a performance featuring music by Australia hip-hop icon, DJ Catkid, and percussionist / musical composer Dane Byrom.  This, combined with the raw sounds of tap and stunning visual acrobatics, will make for a totally unique experience.

"The aim of Raw Metal has always been to create a totally new style of dance, which we call Funk Tap," said Andrew Fee, founding member of Raw Metal Dance Company.  "We are all trained in tap dancing, which is a really technically challenging and entertaining dance style, but we have taken it to a whole new level by combining it with modern funk music," he said.

Raw Metal started out around six years ago, when Andrew had a vision to create an all male group that would make tap dancing relevant for young and modern audiences.  He enlisted four friends who shared his enthusiasm for tap dance, and Raw Metal Dance Company was born.  Since then, Raw Metal has grown to a company of thirteen dancers, and has performed to audiences throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia and USA.
