Razzle Dazzle

Australian mockumentary, from the producer of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Follows the eager, preteen members of Mr Jonathon's Dance Academy (The Jazzketeers) as they prepare for Australia's most prestigious dance competition.

Amidst parental politics, dance school rivalry, creative controversy and the hysterics of pushy stage mothers Mr Jonathan stands true to his vision - not only does he want to entertain, he wants to educate. With his unique routines, like the Kyoto Protocol Shuffle, Mr Jonathan aspires to reflect the world's oppression and injustices in the children's dance.
