Night Players

NP 1Last Friday I got to perform with the Paramount Theater Night Players.

The Night Players is a separate venue from the Paramount Theater, a place for dancers to explore, push some boundaries, and perform some more ‘avant garde’ acts that you might not normally see.

The dancers at Paramount are a wonderful bunch of people and it was fun to perform with them.

NP 2The show opened with a cute routine to ‘Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.’

Definitely some tiny bikinis!

After the bikinis, it was time for Lotta to take the stage.

She always has great costumes and this was a fun set.

Lots of candles, jack-o-lanterns, and, of course, Lotta’s flesh. 😀

NP 3Paramount is another venue where I have to snap the pics quickly, before the costumes start disappearing.

So if you like scantily-clad dancers (sometimes even naked!), you should check out their shows.

Following Lotta was Ariel.

I was so busy snapping pics I forgot to write down the name of the song for this act.

NP 4After Ariel, Queenie took the stage with a very sexy and sultry act.

I’m a huge fan of burlesque, and a sucker for a fan dance.

This was one hot number!

I needed some fans to fan myself. 😛

The last act of the night was a mud wrestling act by Path.

NP 5I thought the set was fabulous, but I don’t have any PG pics for the blog, since Path and Annie started out naked and covered in mud. 😀

I did, however, manage to snap a pic of Lotta.

There’s always something going on at Paramount, so join the group to stay updated.

Night Players shows are on Tuesdays and Fridays.

They also have their regular weekly shows on Saturdays.

Lots of creative people at Paramount, so there’s always something interesting to see.

 

Paramount’s Night Players

I’ve reviewed shows by the Paramount Theater before.

Some time ago, they launched a second show for their more risqué and avant garde performances.

Dubbed the ‘Night Players,’ they perform once a month.

Last night I happened to catch their latest performance.

The shows also have some of the same acts you can see at the Paramount.

Both theaters are on an adult sim, and frequently feature nudity.

If you’re easily offended, this is probably not the show for you.

Night Players 1It’s been a while since I attended one of their shows, so I was curious to see the acts.

The show started out with a performance to Joan Jett’s version of ‘Crimson and Clover.’

I do wish the performer’s had been a bit closer together, just to make pictures a tad easier. 😀

Night Players 2After the band cleared the stage, Lil Angels took the stage, dancing in a group to Tom Jones’ ‘Sex Bomb.’

This was one hot number!

I wish I could share pics of the fabulous costumes, but I’d have to censor all the good stuff. 😛

Next up was Path and Ariel (I think) in a set to Jerry Lee Lewis’ ‘Great Balls of Fire.’

There was no fire, but there was smoke.

I didn’t get any pics of this number (and probably couldn’t have used them anyway!).

Night Players 3After fiddling with my camera, I was able to get a good pic of Lotta and her group dancing to Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass.’

Who doesn’t like ladies in latex, right?!

Following Lotta and the latex ladies was a dance to Queen Latifah’s ‘When You’re Good to Mama’ from the musical Chicago.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a good shot of the dance to share. 😦

The last act of the night was Path and a new (to me) troupe dancer.

Night Players 4Set to a mix of songs, the set was an art studio.

At the beginning of the act, the dancers threw paint cans at each other, which was neatly executed.

The rest of the act was definitely ‘adult’ in nature.

Again, if you are easily offended, this is not the show for you.

Judging by the enthusiastic response from the audience, it was their favorite act of the evening.

In addition to their Night Players shows, they also perform regularly on Saturday evenings.

Join their group or subscriber to stay updated on happenings.

Paramount Theater – Anything Goes

It’s been quite a while since I went to some dance shows, and I had some free time this last weekend.

I went to Fusion Dance Crew’s Cinematastic show Saturday afternoon, and Saturday evening I went to the Paramount show.

Paramount 1I didn’t get to stay until the end, but I wanted to share some pics with you of what I did see. 😀

The opening act was to a favorite song of mine – Eye of the Tiger.

The dancers were in their training gear and practicing moves on the stairs a lá Rocky.

I loved the costumes and the choreography was very well done.

Next up was an interesting set to Here She Comes by Bonnie Tyler.

Lots of neat special effects and a costume change.

If you’ve never been to Paramount, they have a very well-oiled machine when it comes to shows.

Paramount 2While some dancers will be de-rezzing or rezzing sets onstage, they will have a smaller set/dance going on in front of the curtain.

This makes for a lot less ‘down-time’ between large acts.

For this show, I focused on taking pictures of the larger numbers.

There were a lot of good acts, so rather than talking about each one and boring you to death, I’m just going to post the pics! 😛

I know the dancers are already busy working on their next show, so you have plenty of chances to take in a show.

For those of you who like a little more ‘adult’ entertainment, Paramount also puts on a special “Night Players” show each month with routines and costumes that are more avant garde than the regular Saturday shows.

Dance Experiment – Video #2

Despite the holiday busy-ness and my full schedule, I managed to find some time to finish up work on one of the dance videos for my little experiment.

This offering is from Lotta Difference (from the Paramount Playhouse – check out their blog here).  I gave all the dancer victims, erm, volunteers a song.  They were to create a routine using that song.  No other limits – they could build a set or not, use emotes or not, etc.

If there are any mistakes in the videos, they are my fault (or my computer’s, or my ISP’s), not those of any of the dancers.

I want to again say a great big Thank You! to those dancers who volunteered their time and energy for this project.

I do have another video in the works.  I will be posting it in the next few days as well.  I still have several other volunteers who are close to being finished, so once I hear from them and film their routines, those videos will be posted.

I have embedded the video, but if it doesn’t show for you, just click the link below.

Enjoy!
