Meet Jaz, a young hipster bent on becoming a great dancer. By chance he comes across the Big Red Dance Book. On opening it he is confronted by Tralfamorax with the booming voice of boss Brisbane thespian Eugene Gilfedder. Tralfamorax commands Jaz from a galaxy almost far, far away, to do the interstellar dance challenge.

Master choreographer Jacqui Carroll has created an epic contemporary ballet dance solo on the multi-talented Jayden Grogan, in response to selected tunes of well known classical music.

Jaz comes to grips with the dwarf red planet Fredastaireeopiea, Gravity beans, Astro boy steak knives, the superstellar style council, cosmic catabatic winds, Shroedingers Catalepsis, and the Royal Vermin of Galaxos.

Watch Jayden as Jaz overwhelm the moody melodramatic demands of Tralfamorax and emerge triumphant after an hour's worth of hard exciting dancing.
