LADY Gaga. Katy Perry. Flo Rida. The Veronicas.
These names on a resume are pretty impressive but that's just a smattering of acts international choreographer Michael Schwandt has worked with.
And he is coming to Emerald to work with the local dancers here.
The Groove 'n' Flow Dance Collaboration is hosting a special workshop on Wednesday at the Emerald Town Hall featuring Michael for two classes.
Groove 'n' Flow's Kylie Holzigal summed up Michael and his choreography skills as "just amazing".
"He is very talented," Kylie said.
Kylie said Michael had good vision as a choreographer and made a "fabulous" teacher.
Based in Los Angles, Michael is touring in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and New Zealand and was quick to agree to visit in Emerald when Kylie asked him.
"He's getting the red eye from Perth to make it here and then off to New Zealand after here," she said.
"I want to get as many kids as possible because if it goes well then I can get more."
"Anyone and everyone" is invited to come along to the workshop, which is split into a beginner hip-hop class from 3.30-5pm and an intermediate and senior class from 5.30-7pm.
"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity and an incredible dance opportunity," Kylie said.
"It's letting kids see what's out there and available to them... the kids can see what you achieve if you want to."
Kylie said if the workshop was well-supported it would increase the chances of similar events taking place in Emerald.
Classes are $30 each or $50 for both, with cash payment at the door.
Participants are asked to wear comfortable baggy clothes and bring flat-soled shoes and a water bottle.
