Salsa Scouting

Our choreographer Heidi and I (Trisha) went on a scouting mission to the Jazz Kitchen's Latin Dance Party last night. We were in search of some more male dancers for the big opening number for the movie. As we've discovered over the last couple of months, male dancers are hard to find. That's why we decided to go out and recruit. We aren't looking for super professional dancers, just men who have good dance posture, some dance background, and could deal with choreography well. We were also hoping to find at least one guy who had experiences with lifts, so we figured men who could salsa dance would fit that criteria. Turns out there were more than a couple men there who we would have loved to recruit. We talked with three men. We'd love to have them all come dance for us. I just hope when they check out our websites, they don't get scared away. So guys, if you're reading this blog, I'd love to hear from you.

I might go recruiting tonight too. If I actually find 1 man to dance in the movie that would be sufficient, but if I can find several - well, that would just be spectacular. Turns out we had a good time too at the Latin dance party - even though it was a short night. We got there at 9:30 - since ladies get in free before 10, and we were out of there by 11. However, for a short amount of time, we had a pretty good time. We got the group dance lesson, danced a bit, and we were able to find some potential dancers. You can't beat that.
