Amy has been dancing since she was five, and did calisthenics before that. This show has brought about new challenges for her, as she is a cast member as well as choreographer. Amy has loved seeing her ideas come to life, and she’s looking forward to seeing it all come together on stage with costumes, staging and lighting.
Cassie started tap lessons this year, which has been useful for the Herod dance. This style of dance is fitting as Cassie describes herself as a tap shoe, “really loud and looks cool!” She’s always loved the challenge of dancing, rehearsing moves over and over again until she wonders why they seemed so hard in the first place! Cassie can’t wait to share with the audience a story that is so important to her life.
It’s not just the dancing that has been challenging; Ruth has enjoyed the “awesome notes” that the Sopranos have (up to a C6!) in some of the songs. Singing and dancing (and remembering to breathe) at the same time isn’t easy, and it’s been something that the ladies have had to work on during rehearsals. Ruth’s dancing career was put on after knee surgery at age 15. She’s thrilled to be dancing again, and loves sharing the show with new and old friends.
Dance has been a part of Kacey’s life for twenty-four years, “dancing feels like home” to her. She brings a lot of energy and life to the show, her passion shows in every rehearsal. Kacey loves the Superstar chorus, where all the Angels dance in unison. The different poses look very striking up on the platforms!
All of them struggle to pick just one favourite move, as Amy’s choreography has so many highlights! Jess’s favourite move is the kick line in Herod’s song. Cassie loves the Charleston in Herod’s song. Amy loves the Angels interactions with Colin, who is playing Judas, in Superstar. Ruth loves doing “the bounce,” you’ll have to come and see the show in October to know what she’s talking about!
All the Angels are looking forward to sharing this production with you all! If you haven't booked your tickets yet, do so now by clicking here! See you in October!
