It's time for another round of 5 After 5! In case you missed it, last week's list was 5 fun things about your hometown and if you're new to this series, you can read more about it here.
Today I've got my list of 5 to share, as well as next week's topic for you to stew about over the upcoming days.
And if you've posted your own 5 After 5 list on your blog, I've turned this series into a link party - so be sure to get your own 5 things added below (or leave your answers in today's comments if you're not a blogger). I loved reading everyone's comments from last week and I really can't wait to see what you share today!
List 5 of your favorite musical dance numbers
After my annual Christmas-movie-a-thon ends each year, I'm usually inspired to re-watch many of my other favorite classic movies - which often happen to be musicals.
There are so many that I absolutely adore, but this list isn't meant to highlight the movies themselves, but the spectacular dance numbers that they contain.
How many have you seen?
1. Step in Time
This entire song is so catchy and fun, but my favorite part of the number is when all the chimney sweeps take over and dance on top of the smoke stacks.
There's not a ton of dancing in this one, but I think the choreography is nonetheless spot-on. My favorite parts? The bikes - and then the end, on the steps, where they're stepping up and down for each of their notes.
That's just the best.
You know what else is the best? Getting to spend a day re-living the movie in person!
|Oh, you know I totally recreated this part of the song around the fountain!|
|I did not recreate this part, however (but I thought about it!)|
3. Good Morning
Such a fun movie and one that Gv thoroughly enjoyed, as well.
I dare you to keep your feet (or the rest of your body, for that matter) still during this number - Gv and I were totally up and dancing throughout the whole thing (G, however, stayed put. Too busy grading - although I did see his foot tapping the floor a little bit).
I love a bunch of different parts of this whole thing, but the big finish over the couch might be my favorite:
I shared my love of this movie here, but this particular routine is the tops!
I just love his integration of those little popper thingies - so fun!
Okay, okay, okay - I know I just broke the rules and squished three routines into one spot, but I can't help it. Each of these numbers from my all-time favorite movie are just all so fantastic.
Another dance sequence that ends on a couch, this one makes me laugh every time because of how smug the brother-sister duo acted towards the captain, when he suggested they go ahead and dance right away, due to the rough seas (the dancing doesn't start until about 1:30):
This one had Gv quite perplexed the whole time...hopefully she won't be trying this one out around the house. It's a pretty famous routine:
And then there's this one, which is most likely my favorite of the bunch, if I had to pick just one:
(It's also got a bit of syncopation in it, which my offbeat self totally appreciates!)
