The American tour of Dirty Dancing the musical has just begun. Here Dance Informa speaks with three excited cast members at Dance Teacher Summit, New York. Rashaan James II, Phoebe Pearl and Kevin Munhall, who also teach for Broadway Connection when on tour, talk about the rehearsal process, why we should see the show and about teaching.
“The company that we have assembled for our North American tour is beautiful and truthful,” says Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film Dirty Dancing and book writer for the musical. “I originally wrote the movie because I love to dance. And since the movie first appeared, the openhearted audience response has made me believe that everyone has a secret dancer inside them, one they feel could connect them to the physical world in the way they dream. This remarkable cast brings those dreams to life through their extraordinary talent and exceptional skill and it’s a thrill for us to have this group of people bring Dirty Dancing home to North America.”
