In the hit musical, ‘Rock of Ages’ there is one dance that made the audience want to rock out. Choreographer Miah Michaels has done a fantastic job at bringing all the movement and non-movement components together to bring an entertaining yet a little bit saucy, piece of art.
The space in the dance ‘Hit Me with Your Best Shot’ started at the back of the church hall with the lead, Patricia Whitmore in the middle. They moved their way down the centre isle then split into different rows. There are two other dancers that back up Patricia Whitmore for most of the dance. At the end of the dance Patricia Whitmore stands in the doorway and has her final solo, she does a hard kick and slams the door behind her ending the scene. Patricia is the lead because she is the mayor’s wife and is actively trying to rid the town of rock ‘n’ roll.
They walk down centre isles to represent them aggressively attacking Stacee Jaxx and the rock ‘n’ roll community. When Patricia has her solo at the end it represents her secret desire and past life that she is trying to keep secret from the community. The different formation made a well-choreographed dance and very effectively entertained viewers.
