It is not that I have anything against such moves or dancing in general, but I am just really perplexed. Last year, people were all doing this exhausting horse rider dance that was really groovy and energetic, but right now, they dance in a way that it is only their hips that are moving and the rest of their bodies are playing I-am-as-stiff-as-a-wood game. I love the randomness and the freedom of expression part, but can they at least notify other people about the sudden changes they will be doing? I am having these weird thoughts that months from now they will consider aerial dancing... in the outer space.
The good news is that Visa, together with TicketWorld Incorporated, is bringing the real deal here in the Philippines. Dirty Dancing will be performing at the CCP Main Theater (Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo) from July 4 to July 20, so that is almost a month long celebration!
I am actually so bothered with my excitement that I came up with an enumeration on why you too should not miss Dirty Dancing!
5. The Casts
As much as I don't want to include aesthetic facial values, it is quite inevitable. It is not everyday that we see good looking people dancing something other than hiphop; and I have to admit I could really use some new fangirling subjects.
4. The Lifts
It has been one of the major topics around the TicketWorld community. How the hell are they going to do the water lift? I hope they will notify us if water goggles and life vests will be necessary.
3. The Songs
Sure enough The Time of My Life by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes is the landslide winner, and I bet more than half of the audience will be singing along with that song during the performance. However, She's Like the Wind by Patrick Swayze has always been special to me, and there is also the very emotional You Don't Own Me by The Blue Monkeys, so I guess I will be bringing earplugs for my seatmates. Good luck to you, whoever you will be.
2. The Grooves
Dirty Dancing will not stand the test of time if it wasn't because of its superb choreography. I find it really enthicing how they can be that much sexy with decent clothes on... compared to the kind of dirty dancing we have today that is no longer dirty but rather scandalous.
1. Because I will be there too!
1. BECAUSE IT IS THE GREAT DIRTY DANCING
Need I say more? It is Dirty Dancing, the story that built the greatest dancing repertoire!
If those reasons are not enough to get you calling TicketWorld at 891-9999 for ticket reservations, then what can I say?
