Starting out as a group of friends training together at a local dance studio, Shift-1 originally formed to perform a dance routine at a local fashion show, and never looked back! “Shift-1” when typed on a computer keyboard gives you an exclamation mark, and the boys proudly proclaim this as the nerdiest way a dance crew has ever been named!
Shift-1’s unique style is a reinvention of the oldschool street dance styles of Popping & Locking. They bring a signature blend of dancing, story telling and character to their routines through the use of illusionary dance techniques such as waving, puppet and robot.
Shift-1 consists of 5 main members - Sheru (yellow suit), Chris (green suit), Bryce (blue suit), Paul (pink suit) and Rush (purple suit). All of the boys reside in or around the Brisbane area in sunny Queensland - Australia.
In person, the boys are light-hearted and down to earth, always joking around and being happy yet professional. Their goal with each show (whether a performance or a competition) is simply to entertain the crowd as much as possible, while having as much fun as possible!
Most recently, Shift-1 have achieved a grand final finish (3rd place) on the TV show Australia's Got Talent 2008.
