Directing SWING! for Norwegian Cruise Line – Fall 2016

We are honored to have returned for our second time teaching and directing the Broadway show SWING! for Norwegian Cruise Line. This show is near and dear to our hearts as we were dancers in the original NCL cast last year. Also near and dear to our hearts is the wonderful Lynne Taylor-Corbett, the original director and choreographer on Broadway, who we’ve had the pleasure of working alongside these past two installs.

Along with SWING! the cast performs two other main stage shows aboard the Norwegian Gem, Blazing Boots and Get Down Tonight. Blazing Boots is a brand new contemporary, hip-hop, country show choreographed by LA choreographers Chase Benz and Liinda Garisto, with a all-star production team including director Raj Kapoor, producers Kevin Duda, Christopher Allen, and Tanya Morgan, and music director Aaron Jodoin. Get Down Tonight is a 1970’s revue choreographed by John Skufca, and Samantha has been assisting John teaching the show as it contains a lot of fast, hustle-inspired partner work. Both shows are a total blast and we look forward to installing them on the ship!

This cast is beyond phenomenal and it has been such a pleasure to work with them. In our off-moments we started a fun, daily Instagram post of new tricks we learned each day. Please enjoy!: / @sam_and_brian

If you want to witness these three amazing shows and sail the Caribbean, Bahamas, New England and Canada, and port out of Puerto Rico or New York City, book your stay on the Norwegian Gem! >>
