Television-themed dance acts were the focus of Amy Newton Dance Studios’ Channel Dance concert in Shepparton on Friday and Saturday.

The 12th annual concert attracted about 700 people, who turned out across the two nights to watch more than 100 performers take to the stage at the Eastbank Centre.

Dance school principal Amy Newton said popular television series, including American Horror Story, Baywatch and I Dream of Jeannie, were inspiration for the event.

‘‘We choreographed dances that were themed around different television shows,’’ she said.

‘‘We try to do something a little bit different that can be fun, comical and entertaining.

‘‘It was great because the audience could connect.’’

The theme followed through to the programs for the event, which were styled to resemble television guides.

Music stars such as Usher and Whitney Houston were also used as inspiration for the event, and live music was also a feature of the night.
