That was me, back in the day, dancing in a show. It was summer stock, and I performed five shows a day, six days a week, dancing under hot lights in an open-air theater in blistering heat and humidity.
Fun times, despite the conditions. And if one of us dropped from the torture, we all just danced over them and kept on going, because that's what you do when you dance.
And in that fine spirit of "The Show Must Go On," here are some of my favorite dance clips to groove you into your weekend.
Okay, maybe not that guy.How about this guy instead? Gene Kelly. On rollerskates. Tap Dancing.
And what dance compilation would be complete without Donald O'Connor?
Okay, enough of the old school stuff. Let's roll out an oldie but a goldie - The Evolution of Dance!
And who could forget the unbridled exuberance of the finale dance number of "Grease"
I've linked this one before because it's really an all-time personal favorite. Matt Harding quit his job and decided to dance around the world, and this is pure awesome.
And on the heels of that, I'm going to end with something epic. I first saw this years ago and was blown away, Leave it to Bollywood to put an amazing dance number on top of a moving train!
I hope that put you in a festive mood for the weekend - see you on Monday!
