So a good tap dance should make us feel happy. First of all, the music they chose are all very joyful. Especially the musical “Celebrate”. All performers dressed like a real circus troupe like red or green court dress with really dramatic decorative pattern. The scene looked like there is something really great happen in a castle, so the king asked some people play a show for that. The music coordinate with this dancer.

    While all of the princesses were dancing, they had such a presence that made the audience feel included. While the festiveness of the dance was flowing, The Princess of Russia began to do fouetté turns. Out of habit, I hold my breath when I see any ballerina perform those turns because they can make or break a musical phrasing.

The success of Ortt after the first few was so unbelievable, the audience began to clap along with her.…

The production/playwright wanted to bring the popular 1980’s Dirty Dancing movie to the big stage and they did an amazing job.

The choreography was so dynamic and unique that you never knew what to watch because everything that was going on was so beautiful.…
