As a company, Southern Beat Productions’ abilities extend far and wide. Our past productions include corporate events, music videos, fashion parades, theatre, private events, brand launches, commercials, flash mobs, aerial shows, festivals, as well as boutique events for various charities and not-for-profit organisations.

We understand the constraints of today’s time-poor clients, and work closely with them to create a custom-made entertainment event package specially designed for them. We also offer a range of bespoke shows or themes from our varied portfolio of previous productions.

As a company with more than 20 years of experience under our belt, you can be assured that the entire process, from conception to final beat is a seamless and memorable one.

The company owes much of its success to the persistent and passionate senior management team working internationally to ensure the relevance and innovation of the Southern Beat brand is in line with the latest multicultural trends in performing arts.

Creating authentic art that originates from the heart is the foundation of our company, which operates on unwavering standards of integrity and embodies a spirit of excellence.


From Melbourne in southern Australia, we have access to the country’s best dancers, choreography partners, custom designers, and producers. As Australia’s television and entertainment capital, easy access to every capital city in Australia and a busy international airport, we’re able to get where the show demands.
