Fusion Dance Crew

Saturday I attended the latest performance by the Fusion Dance Crew.

FDC 1The theme of the show was ‘The 80’s,’ so I knew I’d enjoy the music. 😀

The show opener was an act to “It Takes Two.”

FDC 2Cute costumes and a great dance routine.

Next up was ‘Maneater’ by Hall & Oates (you know you love it!).

I love the disco pants Falkon was wearing – adorable. 😛

FDC 3After the disco, we headed to Bangkok, for one of my favorite songs.

That’s right – ‘One Night in Bangkok’ by Murray Head.  (It’s actually a song from the musical Chess, one of my absolute favorite musicals.)

FDC 4The next act was set to a song I hadn’t heard in ages – Eddie Rabbit’s ‘Drivin’ My Life Away.’

Fabulous costumes in this act as well.

FDC 5Following was my favorite act of the show.

Set to Wham’s ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,’ it was absolutely hilarious.

And the costumes for this one were just spectacular – love!

The final act of the show was a Latin number, done to ‘Conga’ by the Miami Sound Machine.

FDC 6Dedicated by Feli to her father, it was a great number to end the show.

FDC’s next show will be sometime in 2016, so join their group to stay updated on the latest happenings.

 

Fusion Dance Crew – Cinematastic!

Saturday I attended the latest show from the Fusion Dance Crew, titled “Cinematastic!”

The dancers were asked to create routines to music from their favorite movies.

I love movies and I love dance, so going to this show was a no-brainer for me. 😀

FDC AVPThe show opened with a set from ‘Save the Last Dance’ (one of my favorite dance movies) – I was so engrossed in watching I forgot to snap some pics!

I did remember to get photos for the rest of the acts, however.

The second number was ‘Aliens vs. Predator’ and the set was spectacular.

The costumes were amazing and the choreography was well done.

After AVP, cuteness took over the stage.

FDC Happy FeetI’m a sucker for animal movies, and ‘Happy Feet’ is one of my favorites.

Plus, penguins are adorable!

You can’t tell from the photo, of course, but even the penguins in the background were animated.

Such a cute routine. 😀

After the penguins was ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’ – a Tom Jones version I’d never heard before.

FDC Full MontyI did snap several pics, but only got one that’s PG enough to share on the blog.

It was, as advertised, definitely ‘The Full Monty’!

(insert wolf whistle here)

There were quite a few tongues wagging and ladies fanning themselves by the end of this one. 😛

I must confess, I wasn’t looking forward to the next act, simply because it was ’50 Shades of Grey.’

However, despite my reservations, it was, as always with FDC, a well-done routine.

FDC PocahantasUnfortunately, due to rez issues, I didn’t get a good snap of it. 😦

Next up was Ric doing a Pocahontas routine.

I’ve known Ric for a long time, and he is always the consummate performer.

This routine was pure Ric, and purely delightful.

The last routine of the evening was the finale from Footloose – a perfect choice for the end of the show.

FDC FootlooseFootloose is one of my all-time favorite dance movies (isn’t it everyone’s?) and I loved the set and the costumes.

The girls in their pretty dresses, the boys decked out in their finest, and pure dancing fun had by all.

Another well-produced show by the folks at FDC. 😀

I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Age of Aquarius

I’ve always loved that song.

My parents were ‘baby boomers’ and that song got a lot of airtime in our house as I was growing up.

Yesterday I went to the Fusion Dance Crew’s ‘Age of Aquarius’ show.

It was a ‘walk through the 60’s.’

FDC RicIt was certainly more than just a dance show, with poetry incorporated, and commentary on some of the events.

Ric did an amazing number (sadly, I can’t remember the song), but it was about Vietnam and how those experiences affected the soldiers who fought.

The explosions, offset by the black spotlight, were mesmerizing.

It was truly a moving number.

I was very impressed by the special effects in the various acts.

FDC Ric 2Sometimes effects can be overwhelming, seeming to be there just for the sake of bells and whistles, but the effects in this show were very well done.

The moving background for this number, along with all the effects, was a bit disorienting.

That was intentional, as we followed the dancer through his acid trip, complete with emotes.

This show was a repeat performance, and I don’t know that there are any plans to perform it again.

However, FDC has another show coming up in April, so if you haven’t seen one of their shows, make sure to save the date on your calendar.

Fusion Dance Crew

I went to the Fusion Dance Crew’s ‘SeXXXalicious’ show this weekend, and it did not disappoint!  Feli and her crew always put on a good show.

It started off with Sex Ed 101.  (I don’t remember the students OR teachers looking that good in high school!)

FDC Sex Ed 101

Then some colorful rave dancing:

FDC Lovin' You

Followed by the fabulous (and hilarious!) Cabaret Boys:

FDC Cabaret Boys

Then the deliciously sexy Pussycats:

FDC Don't Cha

Followed by a brief foray into the Twilight Zone:

FDC Twilight Zone

Then more kisses:

FDC Kiss

There was a verrry seXXXy closing number, but unfortunately I didn’t get any good pics of that one.  😦

It was a great show, so next time you see the Fusion Dance Crew is having a performance, don’t miss it!

 

Weekend Entertainment

As usual, there are lots of dance shows on the weekend.  I don’t have enough time to go to all of them, so it’s always hard trying to decide which ones to go to.

This weekend, Elysium Cabaret has their weekly show at 6pm.  Then there’s Guerilla Burlesque at midnight.  I’ve been to a couple of shows, but the time makes it difficult for me to attend.  However, if you’re generally in-world at that time, it’s a ‘don’t miss’ show!

On Saturday, the Fusion Dance Crew is putting on a new show called ‘SeXXXalicious.’

FDC SeXXXalicious Show 3.28.2014

If you’re offended by nudity, don’t attend, but Felicia and her crew always put on a good show.

There’s also usually a show at Blue Moons at 2:30pm SLT on Saturday.  If you prefer evening entertainment, the Moulin Rouge Revue does a weekly show at 7pm.

If you’re up early on Sunday, catch the club IMAGE show at 6am.  If you’d rather sleep in, at 5pm you can catch the latest Winds of the Sahara Cabaret show (check out their new blog here, with some sneak peeks of acts) and KiKi’s House of Burlesque does a regular show on Sundays at 6pm.

Whew!  That’s a lot of dancing!

See you on the grid!
