 About The Supreme Dreams

The Supreme Dreams, three gorgeous girls with fabulous voices, retro costumes and groovy dance moves, bring back the hit songs of the 60s. Think Martha and the Vandellas, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and The Supremes and then you’ll start humming the songs that made these legends: Baby Love, Nowhere to Run, Proud Mary, You Can’t Hurry Love will have any audience Dancin’ in the Streets!

Tammi, Cindy and Kiki are The Supreme Dreams and, just like the best “girl groups” of the 60s, The Supreme Dreams salute both the fresh, optimistic buoyancy of this 60’s movement as well as the high energy and throbbing rhythms, which are bound to have you out of your seat and dancing. Like many other all-girl groups, The Supreme Dreams can’t help but reflect the typical teenage concern of “girl–dealing-with-boy” as expressed through songs such as Where Did Our Love Go, My Guy, (Love is Like a) Heat Wave and Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.

The Supreme Dreams provide a fully costumed and choreographed show lasting from 15 minutes to 2 hours. They love any opportunity to get amongst their audience and to get them up dancing. Starting with music from the 60’s and moving through to the disco era, this energetic and popular show has toured to Far North Queensland, headlined at the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, stormed the stage at the Princess Theatre in Brisbane and featured at the 2014 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

If you want fun, high energy entertainment with well-loved songs, The Supreme Dreams are your Supreme Dream.


COMPANY PROFILE

Success on Stage is passionate about music performance and providing opportunities for the young performer. We offer a variety of services that develops performers and audiences for live music and theatrical musical experiences. We also create performance opportunities for the developing performer and produce high quality and appropriate entertainment for all types of events. To date, Success on Stage has created numerous events and performances with no use of Arts Funding.

Leslie Martin, who runs Success on Stage, is a professional opera singer who has had a career working with Opera Australia and Opera Queensland, as well as performing in European opera houses and music festivals. In the mid 1990s she started creating shows and began an association with one of the Southern Hemisphere’s (then) largest outdoor opera events – Opera on the Beach – both as creator and performer, singing alongside other stars of Opera Australia. The experience and skills gained from this series have been put to great use in producing many other events and, thereby, providing performance opportunities for young performers. And yet, Success on Stage is certainly not all about opera!


Developing performers

Success on Stage has been providing training and professional performance opportunities to young artists for over 15 years. Musical styles range from opera to music theatre to Motown to Contemporary Commercial Music (CCM) and the young artists perform in varying contexts and venues. Many of the shows are interdisciplinary which broadens the experience and network of our young performers.

We also do Workshops!

The duration of the workshop would depend on the length of time in any one place. Assuming we only have one day, the workshops would last 2-3 hours. Participants need to wear loose comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear.

  1. Singing workshop: participants will learn how to manage their breath and help free their voice. Part singing will be involved with a complete song learned by the end of the session.
  2. Dance workshop – Jazz (12-25 years): participants will build on their existing knowledge of dance and learn a number of routines.
  3. Dance workshop (Learn a routine from The Supreme Dreams show): participants will learn parts of 2 actual routines from The Supreme Dreams show so they can dance along during the show.
  4. Dance Therapy workshop – Dementia sufferers or Alzheimers Prevention: The class structure is broken up into five sections. They are: Connection; Warm-up; Nourishment; Theme and Closure. The class is two hours in length and we suggest the workshop starts at 10.00 am in the morning. We recommend having only 12 people per class inclusive of six people living with dementia and six enablers.
