“Moonlite” by Goodnight Circus, Choreography by Caleb Teicher

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-5-58-14-pmWe loved working with Caleb Teicher in this piece as it highlights so many facets we have trained in and are interested in integrating: swing, jazz, musical theater, and of course, humor. In this piece Brian thought he invited Samantha over just for a cozy date. Samantha misinterpreted and decided to bring over a collection of her craziest friends. Chaos ensues.

Dispersed throughout the video you’ll see us dancing Netta Yerushalmy’s unique modern/contemporary choreography and also little bits of Lindy Hop. To spot us: Brian is wearing a fedora, red mesh tank and suspenders, and Samantha is wearing a red wrap dress with open back, with hair in a bun with a wrap around it. Don’t blink! You can spot us in little bits throughout!
