FAMILY DANCE PARTY
Friday, July 16, 2021 | 7:00 – 8:00 pm | Bryan Park
Get out of the house and move your body! Cardinal is throwing an outdoor dance party that will be fun for all ages. Want to show off your moves? You can learn a choreographed group dance at home and join the performance that will kick off the party! Plus, see a special performance from the Bloomington Academy of Film and Theatre’s Cardinal Broadway Bootcamp.
Want to participate in the group dance? We’re getting the party started with Katy Perry’s “Roar”! Watch the video below to practice the choreography at home. On the day of the party, arrive early to find a space and practice. Rehearsal will start an hour before the event, at 6:00pm sharp. Try to wear solid, bright colors so you stand out against the grass!
Won’t have a chance to practice the dance at home? No problem! After the big performance around 7:00pm, the “dance floor” will be open for all. Feel free to come and watch – dance as little or as much as you’d like!
Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect and can keep you informed of any updates to the event. The rain date for this event is July 17.
Please Note: All participants are expected to maintain a 6ft distance between themselves and other groups. The field will be clearly marked to help with this. No refreshments will be available at the event, so plan to bring water, snacks, and plenty of sunscreen.
The “Choreography Tutorial” is about 25 minutes long and takes dancers through the whole number step by step. There are 3 distinct sections, dancers are encouraged to learn the whole number (which is about 2 min. long), but those who don’t have the time or ability to learn the whole song are welcome to just learn parts 2 and 3, or just part 3.
Timestamps: Part 1 (0-8:35), Part 2 (8:35-16:50), Part 3 (16:50-End)
The “Choreo Review with Music” puts the whole song together in sections, with the music and is great for rehearsal once the steps have been mastered. This video will help dancers understand how everything comes together with the music.
