"THRILLER-DANCING ZOMBIES"

FOR AN UPCOMING MJ FLASH MOB ON OCTOBER 27 IN-COSTUME ZOMBIE PERFORMANCE!!
(DETAILS BELOW)

MJ's Thriller rehearsal with Terry Chasteen Take #2
(Oct 24, 2012)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=oopeLga9PKI

PLEASE NOTE: SOME ZOMBIE STATIONS WILL BE OUTSIDE, SO HAVE ENOUGH LAYERS IN YOUR ZOMBIE COSTUME TO STAY WARM. BRING INSULATED LONG UNDERWEAR JUST IN CASE. THERE WILL BE VALET PARKING ON SITE AND THERE WILL BE A GREEN ROOM TO CHANGE INTO COSTUMES. ALSO 'PLENTY' OF FREE PARKING IN FRONT THE SURROUNDING EMBASSIES DURING REHEARSALS AT 'DANCESPORT DUPONT CIRCLE'..

To be considered for this event EVERYONE MUST ATTEND REHEARSAL AT LEAST ONCE THIS WEEK OF OCT 21, and TWICE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE (Sun@6pm, Wed@6pm, 6:45pm and 9pm, Thurs@8:15pm and Fri ONLY IF ENOUGH RSVP 24 HRS IN ADVANCE at 8pm).

Performers will be selected for pay during shifts from 5-9pm or 9pm-1am, but if you cannot attend this event, NO PROBLEMO! Your time and efforts are not wasted. Now that we have a core group of dancers, more MJ FlashMobs will be forthcoming, including excerps from 'Beat It', 'Bad', 'Billie Jean' and eventually 'Smooth Criminal'.

Dancing in one of the 2 performances at 8pm and 10pm is mandatory for payment. Even if you already know Michael Jackson's choreography, we'll be doing an earlier line dance, not on the DVD, of Michael's moves around Ola Ray down the pathway to the graveyard. This is danced to the prelude of the cd before the long routine. The long routine will be danced to the Vincent Price rap.

If not already dancing the complete 'Thriller' routine at full speed and in it's entirety from beginning to end, you CANNOT learn this in one or two sessions, especially since in one segment alternating lines go in opposite directions; a challenge for even seasoned performers.

Training: $5/person or free with any earlier or later class taken on that day. Those performing on Oct 27 will be paid (you need not perform on Oct 27 to attend and learn this routine. We definitely WILL be planning other MJ FlashMobs for you to participate in so come now and get the training behind you):

Sun - 6:00pm

Wed - 6pm, 6:45pm & 9pm

Thurs - 8:15pm

Fri (only if enough RSVP 24 hrs in advance to cover most of the studio cost) - 8pm-9:15 (though I can be available before and after as needed from 7:00 on).

Required time on set at the venue:
at least 1/2 hour before scheduled time for orientation (4:30 first shift and 8:30 second shift).

We 'WILL' have a green room for changing into costumes so no need to wear them to the venue.

Also needed: costumes of 'Elvira' Photo of Elvira, queen of the Dark, Margaret Hamilton Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West in 'OZ' or Glinda the Good Witch Glinda the Good Witch (Wizard Of Oz), Herman Herman Munster_ThumbHerman Munster,
Lilly Lilly Munster holding up gown or Eddy Munster Half-screen Eddie Munster-Paul Ryan (Paul Ryan look-alike), Gomez Adams Gomez Adams of The Adams Family of The Adams Family or Count Dracula Clip Art Count Dracula.

WANTED! (PREFERABLY ALIVE): 'THRILLER' DANCING ZOMBIES FOR AN OCT 27TH IN-COSTUME PERFORMANCE

'DanceSport at Dupont Circle'

Sundays: 3pm-11pm ... Salsa on both 1 & 2, Bachata, Kizomba, Ballroom, Swing of all styles, International Latin, Brazilian Samba, C/W, 'Dance-at-Your-Wedding Workshops' and Argentine Tango and Milonga classes plus the 'Domingo en Dupont MILONGA'

includes beg & int classes PLUS social dancing, refreshments & desserts from the oven (with Ice cream!).

WANTED! (PREFERABLY ALIVE): 'THRILLER' DANCING ZOMBIES FOR AN OCT 27 PERFORMANCE!!)



30 dancing characters needed for Oct 27 to dance the authentic 'Michael Jackson's Thriller'. If you don't already know it, you would need to come to 'Thriller' classes at DanceSport DuPont Circle between now and then to learn the routine for a 'Michael Jackson's Thriller' FlashMob (not the 'Thrill The World' version but the original ...there only is and always will be only one).


Everyone must be available for and perform two FlashMobs at 8pm and 10pm (or for some who want to stay, to 1:00am) and lurch around the Haunted House scaring the Haiti out of innocent little children and their parents (FUN, NO?) for the two hours in between. The required time ends at 10 pm so here's still plenty of time for you to go elsewhere afterwards for Halloween.

Those who can come earlier and/or stay longer, however on Oct 27 (I need 10 before from 5pm and about 10 from 10pm to about midnight) and/or provide a much more elaborate costume like an Elvira or Lily & Herman Munster, Margaret Hamilton or members of the Adams Family or even some horrible creature; they would be given special consideration.

The Caveat is that everyone needs to be in the 'Michael Jackson's Thriller' FlashMobs at 8pm and 10pm so would have to come to 'THRILLER' class to learn the choreography. But then who has not wanted to do just that; paid gig or no paid gig, learn this iconic dance routine since the first time they ever saw it? And HERE is actually a chance to do it for 'PAY'!


Let me know ASAP if interested and any questions, I need a number by Sunday. Invite any other dancing friends to either perform or to just take the class for fun. 

Thanks, and if I don't see you, have a Happy Halloween!

Joe Petrisko has been dancing American social ballroom since 1986 and Argentine Tango since 1992, and performing and teaching since 1994. He began hosting milongas in 1995 and in 1998 made the first of what turned into annual trips to Buenos Aires to study Argentine tango history, evolution and etiquette, and to immerse himself in the tango culture.  In his teaching Joe emphasizes technique & the social aspect of the dance.

Joe has studied in the US and in Argentina with Carlos Copello & Alicia, Copes & Nieves, Lorena Ermocida, Jorge & Aurora Firpo, Mora Godoy, Pepito Avallaneda & Suzuki, Milena Plebs, Pablo & Esther Pugliese, Fabian Salas, Daniel Trenner, Michael Walker, Miguel Zotto, Osvaldo Zotto, Mariella Franganilla.

Also, before we go any farther....nobody asked for my opinion...BUT...

HOW MANY MORE INNOCENT AMERICANS MUST
DIE OR BE SERIOUSLY INJURED
BEFORE WE
STOP ALL CELL PHONE DRIVING

IN THE US?

Not one of the 60,000+ deaths or 250,000+ injuries in America in 2008 resulting from texting and talking on the phone is worth any one of those phone calls or text messages; not to mention the hundreds of thousands that have taken place since. This is not just a teenager problem or a commercial truck or bus driver problem, this is a serious problem and an ongoing danger to innocent people that involves EVERY SINGLE DRIVER in this country. So why are we still pondering over the use of cell phones while driving in the US? DC and several states have already wisely and responsibly outlawed the use of all cell phones while driving and now it needs to be a national restriction. Are we going to continue allowing the lobbyists of the wealthy phone companies to continue to rule congress in America, or are we each going to stand up to the plate and do something about it?

Please commit to making any automobile
that you're riding in an official

Visit www.StopAllCellPhoneDriving.org to learn how you can help
to eliminate this deadly obsession from America's highways. Keep in mind
that the next life that is lost (and there will be MANY before we stop this
irresponsible practice) may well be your life or the life of someone you love.

 


I hope you were able to see my first 'World Premiere" at the Kennedy Center(OK, so maybe it wasn't actually MY World Premiere...except for the Tango choreography, including a "searing Tango" between Tom Buchanan and Gatsby as depicted by The Washington Post... "[Artistic Director Septime] Webre does a tremandous job at keeping the ballet in motion. A searing Tango spells out the danger between Gatsby and Tom")
Wed, Feb 24 - Sun, Feb 28 Tango in 'The Great Gatsby' at the Eisenhower Theatre of the Kennedy Center

(Wednesday's performance is completely sold out and tickets for all evening performances are limited).
A Tango scene was added late in the makings of the World Premiere of 'The Great Gatsby' performed by the Washington Ballet at the Kennedy Center, to include both Argentine and International style choreographed by Rene' Davila and Terry Chasteen. One more opportunity to get our beloved Tango into the mainstream theatre through what promises to be a groundbreaking new musical. Times and ticket Information available at www.TangoDanceSPORT.com , www.DanceDirt.com and www.WashingtonBallet.org to include group discount information. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F Street, NW Washington, DC 20566. Contact: TerryChasteen@TangoDanceSPORT.com , 202-462-0870.


Luis Torres and Elizabeth Gaither as Tom and Daisy Buchanan in the Washington Ballet's 'The Great Gatsby'.

'The Great Gatsby', a World Premiere about to hit the stage of the Eisenhower Theatre at the Kennedy Center from Feb 24-28 is a Secret of DC about to be unleashed. This incredibly fun-filled musical of the Roaring 20's era performed by the 'Washington Ballet' under the guidance of artistic director Septeem Webre is LOADED with some of the most incredible song and dance numbers of nearly every style, including tap, Charleston, jazz, Swing and more PLUS an Argentine, International AND American style Tango scene co-choreographed by Rene' Davila and YOURS TRULY! Our first World Premiere!
"The Washington Ballet returns to the splendor of the Jazz Age and the frivolity of the Roaring Twenties through Artistic Director Septeem Webre's re-imagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald's passionate, thought-provoking, and complex work". Visit www.DanceDirt.com for details, including ticket purchases and group discounts (and you should hurry!

.Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but rather by the places and moments that take your breath away...
(....Like when you're dancing 150 mile-an-hour Jive, Salsa, Viennese Waltz or Quickstep!!!...

Now THAT'LL take your breath away!!)

."We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance" ~ Japanese proverb

. Make "I can" an integral part of your vocabulary. Whenever you're tempted to say
"I can't," stop, take a deep breath, and imagine what would happen if you gave
it your all.

. To have a passion that brings Joy to one's life and to fail sharing that passion with others is
a direct insult to the God who gave it...(regardless of whichever God that might be...).

. Courage is being afraid to do something, but making the decision to do it, anyway...
For some people, it takes "Courage".....to DANCE!!
