Should fans be allowed to make casting choices? The Vampire Dancer Saga–Reality TV Show script?

The Vampire Dancer Saga FrontWe all know how traditional casting works.  The studio big wigs chase the actors who can pull in a big fan base.  Or, in some cases, the ACTOR calls all the shots.  Think Will Smith, Angelina Jolie, Robert DeNiro, Brad Pitt, Tyler Perry and others on the RARE list of in-demand “A” List Talent who can do what the hell they want!  In particular, those actors who also have their own production company (Will, Robert, Tyler, etc.) , they can do any big budget movie for any studio and also produce their own.

I would LOVE to start a new trend in casting, sort of like a Reality TV Show, where the FANS can pick the ACTORS to play in the final production.  Think: So You Think You Can Dance, we watch the Auditions for the first part of the season and the final dance competition at the end.  By the way, bravo to Eliana Girard and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp this season’s Queen & King of SYTYCD!   Was rooting for Eliana all the way!  My favorite dance this season was their ballet duo.

 

Any-who, wouldn’t it be cool to dream about having the Vampire Dancer Saga as a DRAMEDY where the fans call in and vote on dancers, actors and actresses who want to participate?  The first part of the season would be the acting and dancing auditions and the last part would be the actual Dance Decades from the book.

Chehon Wespi-Tschopp Eliana GirardThat would be totally WIN-WIN!  The fans get a chance to participate by voting.  And I would say let the fans also be a part of the show via Skype!  New and veteran actors, actresses and choreographers would have a chance at open casting!  No more Hollywood politics or old favorites.  Let some new blood get a chance!  Also this would give DANCERS of all ages and dance backgrounds a chance to audition.  I would not have any age, race, size, restrictions at all.  Everyone can play, as the book it not just for teens or kids – it has characters of all ages, shapes & sizes.

The perfect show runner for this would be Miss TRIPLE T herself, Debbie Allen.  She would be in charge, as Nigel is in charge of So You Think You can Dance.  Debbie and Fox I’m planning to start bugging you about this, LOL!

With that in mind, I would LOVE your thoughts on comments on this idea, I think it would be a great show, one that I would love to watch!

Speaking of Miss Triple T Debs, what out for your part in newest script below.  We have 3 new Characters:

  • Tobias, I spy David Mann
  • Grace, I spy Tamela Mann
  • Loie, I spy Sutton Foster

The Vampire Dancer Saga: Chapter 1 – Dancing makes you Buff! (Script, part 2)

MEDDLING GRANNY

Alright, now that we’ve met our contestants, it’s time to get things started. Each team will use their super powers to go back in time to St. Louis in 1900.

As Butchers& Bakers arrive, they find themselves standing in front of a simple family home.

GRANNY

I remember this place. This is your Uncle Tobias place. I haven’t seen Tobias in years. We have to stop and say hello.

BIG DADDY knocks at the door at GRANNY’s insistence. A man answers the door hesitantly at first, but when he sees GRANNY he smiles and opens her arms to her. They hug and he motions everyone into the house.

David MannTOBIAS

What are you all doing here?

TOBIAS wife GRACE comes out of the kitchen.

GRACE

Tobias, who do you have out here?

When GRACE sees GRANNY she, too, is thrilled. The women embrace.

GRACE

I don’t know when I’ve last seen you. What are you doing here?

GRANNY

Just passin’ through. Boy, I remember those dresses—how hot they were in the summer weather.

GRACE

I can’t disagree with you there. I suppose by whatever future you came here from, everyone will be running around with nothing on.

GRANNY

Laughs.

Not exactly. Well, not everyone.Tamela Mann

GRACE

So what can we do for you?

GRANNY

Grace, we’re involved in a little competition.

BIG DADDY

Extra points for anyone who can show off some kinda dance.

GRANNY

Do you think you can teach us one of the local dances?

GRACE

No problem. Tobias, why don’t you move some of that furniture out of the way?

Cut to: A group of Glamour and Voodoo dancers stand in the lobby of a building. A banner says “Loie Fuller School of Dance.” They are overwhelming a local person.

LOIELoie Fuller

You want to learn how to do what?

ALYCE

We want to learn to dance. Can you teach us or not?

LOIE

Sutton FosterAnd you are certain you’ve had dance experience?

ALYCE

Maybe not the sort of dancing you’re used to, but yes, we have had dance experience.

LOIE

I suppose I’ve taught worse looking sorts. If you will all come this way, why don’t we try the tango?

Cut to: The stage is set for one of the competitions to begin. We see the Le Monsters taking the stage and beginning their warm-up exercises.

TRIPLE T

Behind me you see the Le Monsters warming up. They will be the first contestants to strut their stuff in the Vampire Defense Skills competition. Let’s watch as they begin.

From this point TRIPLE T is giving a play-by-play as we watch the action taking place.

TRIPLE TMunsters

And there goes the opening blow. That is a classic move but when it is paired with—and yes, there it is. A classic move goes out dated in one fell swoop. And it looks like the next move is not much better. OH! Did you see that? Old school moves that should just be retired. But it doesn’t stop there as they go in to– No! There they go again. Now this team is the oldest one in the competition and their moves really show it. These skills might have been all the rage 2000 years ago but now they are just old school and campy—these moves are highly unlikely to be effective. If they want to stay in the game they are going to have to get some new blood in there and update those skills. And now for the judges: They have given the Le Monsters a combined score of . . . 3.2.

Here there is a montage of the other teams showing off their Vampire Defense Skills– including a shot of the Braden Hunchbacks bickering amongst themselves and then trying to dispatch a vampire while posing on the stairs– and the judges giving scores of each performance. The montage ends with TRIPLE T’s next speech.

Debbie AllenTRIPLE T

Next up we have the Mutant Weirdoes. They warmed up previously and are ready to begin. And they certainly do come out swinging! . . . Those moves are stylized and precise. . . What a sight to behold. . . Look at how they move together, almost as if they were one. This is what defense skills should look like. . . There is no escaping these guys. . . I wouldn’t want to be on the wrong side of them. . . . Clean and efficient. These guys have the style that everyone else copies.

And the judges have given the Mutant Weirdoes . . . . 5.0! The Mutant Weirdoes are the winners!

The crowd goes wild. After the applause have died down, RUNO takes the stage.

RUNO

We have just seen what our contestants can do in the way of vampire defense. Next up, our second competition is best powers in which our contestants have an opportunity to impress us with their most unique skills. A large part of the judging will entail, just how well developed these skills are and their level of command. Our first team up in this round is Turd Blue. As you can see behind me, they are taking the stage now.

It looks like Turd Blue is showing us a fantastic tree offering and. . . wait for it. . . wait for it. . . it would appear to be. . . yes, it is. . . a Dionysus worshipping Maenad! Nice! Really nice! Very impressive work from Team Turd Blue. Now let’s go to the judges.

And the judges are tallying the scores. . . it looks like the judges have given them a 4.8. Not bad at all.

Now let’s go on to our next team.

TrueBlood3PELVIS takes the stage and sings “Bad Things.” When he gets to the line “ I want to do real bad things to you,” a chant begins and the crowd goes wild. He and Snooki  flirt with each other as he sings.

This is followed by a montage of the other teams displaying their Best Powers. At one point the Spare Track team attempts to transform an audience member with the chant, “Resistance is futile.” The audience member, however, is wearing earphones and listening to some sort of hand held device and does not hear the chant. The chant is a failure and the crowd boos and starts its own chant, “BEAM THEM UP SNOTTY.” After which the Spare Track Team is transported and disappears.

Judges tally the scores. Turd Blue is declared the winner.

BLEN

Now on to our last competition to determine who will be going on to the semi-finals: The Best Shape Shifter.

VampireDiary1A montage ensues of the teams competing for best shape shifter. During the montage the Diary of a Mad Vamp Team shifts into a version of doubles from the Alternate Universe. Then they conger the St. Louis Arch from 1967 and 2067. The 2067 arch is copper instead of green. The crowd goes wild. Diary of a Mad Vamp team gets a 5.0 from the judges.

KAR ANNA

Alright and now it is time to unveil our winners. Remember those in the top spots will be going on to the semi-finals.

In seventh place we have the Le Monsters! In sixth place is Braden Hunchbacks; in fifth place the Spare Tracks; coming in fourth is the Butchers & Bakers; third place goes to Mutant Weirdoes; In second place we have Turd Blue. And in our top spot, coming in at first place is Diary of a Mad Vamp. Congratulations to everyone!

Mutant Weirdoes take the stage to claim their trophy. ANGELA hold the trophy above her head and shouts exultantly.

ANGELA

Buffy1Let’s get ready to rumble for our next Vampire Olympic Showdown in St. Louis!

Now is your time to Join in! Comments, complaints, criticisms and casting choices are welcome!

Who would you cast to play in The Vampire Dancer Saga?

Would the Vampire Dancer Saga make a great REALITY TV Show?

The Vampire Dancer Saga back cover

Stop the Presses! Eliana Girard is my new casting choice for Elly Powers! Also new script for Chapter 1 The Vampire Dancer Saga!

Eliana Girard1I take back my casting choice for The Vampire Dancing Saga, Chapter 4, Dancing with Flair at the Fair, the 1930s! A new dancer has arrived on the scene from the last episode of So You Think You Can Dance: ELIANA GIRARD!

Eliana is one of the best dancers on reality TV dance shows in many a moon. I predict so much future success for this very talented dancer. One day she will be in movies just like Julianne Hough, or my favorite dancer of all time: ELEANOR POWELL!

I have been rooting for Eliana since SYTYCD Season 9 started in May of this year.

She was the ABSOLUTE BEST DANCER from last Wednesday’s show. Even Nigel admitted that she was his favorite girl and that was her night. Indeed.

 

Tice Diorio’s Eliana Girard3opening number for the August 22nd show was SPECTACULAR! That was my all time favorite choreography by Tice! His best work, in my humble opinion. His group dance: “The Cool World Stomp” should win an EMMY award! Did you notice that Eliana was the lead dancer in that number?

 

 

I had previously mentioned casting:

Dancer/Actress Character – The Vampire Dancer Saga
Vivian Nixon Elly Powers
Sabra Johnson Phina Brown or Triple T Debs

Now that I have watched Eliana Girard on the August 22nd episode of SYTYCD, I change my casting choices to:

Dancer/Actress Character – The Vampire Dancer Saga
Eliana Girard Elly Powers
Vivian Nixon Phina Brown
Sabra Johnson Triple T Debs

VivianNixon1Vivian Nixon is the SPITTING image, MINI-ME of her famous mom, Debbie Allen, so wouldn’t it make more sense to cast her as Triple T Debs? Maybe not? That would probably freak Vivian out to play her mom and Debbie out to have her daughter playing her.

Here is out next script for Chapter 1, part 1: Dancing Makes You Buff! Another great job by the scriptwriter. It’s great to have a different set of eyes look at your book. I would have never thought to split up the dialogue among the judges. But hey, that’s what scriptwriters are for. To make it make sense as a TV episode or movie scene.

The setting is a large athletic competition. In the stands, the crowd is filled with interesting looking characters: people with cloaks, clothing from various eras of history, hair styles of every shape, size, color and description. The host, BOM TERGERON steps to a podium in a central location on the playing field. As he steps up, the cheering fans quiet.

BOM

Quiet Everyone! Let’s take our places, please.

Dichen LachmanKAR ANNA, BLEN, RUNO, LIGEL NITCHGOW, MURPH MARE and TRIPLE T DEBS all take their places at the judges table. Each seat has a name plate, microphone and clipboard.

BOM

It is time to explain the rules for this very special, year 3000, Vampire Olympics. As you know, the Vampire Olympics occur every ten years. This year’s competition will include the following events:

KAR ANNA

Part 1: Supernatural Protection skills.

Category A: Vampire defense which includes defending oneself against wooden stakes, silver, garlic and decapitation.

Category B: Best Power which will include witchcraft, potions, spells, premonitions and Voodoo.

Category C: Best Shifter which includes mummy, zombie, wolf, ram or hart.

BLENEnver Gjokaj

The four teams who earn the highest scores will be moving on to the semi-finals. Part two of our competition is World Transformations. Each team will be required to go back in time and alter certain events from the way they happened.

RUNO

The remaining three teams will go on to compete for the winner of the 3000 Vampire Olympics. Part three will also be World Transformations, but it will be returning the previously changed events from part two to the way they originally occurred.

LIGEL

Anthony HeadThird place winners will receive a wooden mini-coffin filled with vials of A, B, AB and O blood.

preference, full bathroom—and what luxury coffin would be complete without a Voodoo doll head with special powers?

MURPH

Winners from our last competition, the Collins Family, are on hand and have picked this year’s location.

MURPH indicates a large stadium box where we see LA BELLE, JACK, ED, LISA and BARNABY seated.

LaBelle, would you please tell our contestants what time and destination they will be traveling to.

We see LA BELLE step to a microphone situated in the stadium box.

Summer Glau

LA BELLE

I’d love to. Our contestants will be traveling back to the year 1900 to exercise their skills in St. Louis. Each team will have one hour for each of the competitions in part one with ten minutes to prepare.

Each team will first have ten minutes to use their best power to shift them to the time and place of the event. Once there, they must glamour the location so that ordinary citizens are not able to view judges or audience members from the future.

After all judges and audience members have teleported, then each team can start the first competition: Vampire Defense.

BOM

Thank you, LaBelle. Triple T would you explain what will take place once the competition begins?

TRIPLE T

Of course, Bom. The judges will eliminate one of the seven teams during the ten minute intermission after the Vampire Defense competition using a combination of scores and audience votes. The remaining six teams will then go on to the Best Powers competition. After which the judges will eliminate another team using the method previously mentioned. The remaining five teams will compete in the Strongest Shifters competition after which one more team will be eliminated. The remaining four teams will go on to the semi-finals.

LA BELLE has appeared next to the stage where the podium and the judges’ table sit. With her are MEDDLING GRANNY, PRUNES, PIPPA, FEEBLE and PAGEANT.

BOM

Thank you Triple T. Now it should be explicitly understood that no cheating of any kind will be tolerated at this competition. And to ensure that the rules are adhered to, we have a special enforcement team of super witches to oversee this competition. LaBelle, would you like to introduce the Charming Ladies?

The ladies step up to the platform and LaBelle takes the mic.

LA BELLE

I certainly would, Bom. May I present the Special Witch Police for the 3000 Vampire Olympics: Meddling Granny, Prunes, Pippa, Feeble, and Pageant! Aren’t they charming?

BOM

Ladies and Gentlemen, please standby for the lighting of our Olympic Flame.

A torch is passed from team to team. The last team hands the torch on to BOM who lights the cauldron. The crowd goes wild.

The Vampire Dancer Saga back coverNow let’s meeting our contestants! Please give a warm welcome to each of our teams!

First up is the Mutant Weirdos!

As each team is named, they come trotting across the field, wearing shirts with the team name on the front and the contestant’s name on the back. Crowd goes wild as each team is announced.

 

 

  • Diary of the Mad Vamps

The Vampire Dancer Saga

Casting Call: Which actors would you cast to play DWTS (Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke), SYTYCD (Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy or Cat Deeley), or Buffy characters in the Movie Version of The Vampire Dancer Saga?

The Vampire Dancer SagaI’m working on having a script written for my newly published book, The Vampire Dancer Saga.  Who do you think will be great to cast in the spoofs of Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance and Buffy the Vampire Slayer BTVS cast members?

Let’s see if you agree with my cast suggestions:

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
This casting is super EASY!  Let’s put most of the actors from the cancelled The Secret Circle back to work:

Mutant Weirdoes (SunniHell, CA)
Buff Dude (Vampire vanquisher)Chris Zylka
Angela (Vampire)
Zanadu (Glamour dancer)
Will Potter (Male witch from London)
Wiz (Werewolf)

Phoebe TonkinYou may have noticed that Buffy is now a Buff DUDE (she’s a man, baby) and Angel is now a GIRL (Angela).  Also Xander and Willow have switched genders as well.  With that in mind, here are my choices:

  • Buff Dude is now Chris Zylka (who played Jake Armstrong on The Secret Circle)
  • Angela is now Phoebe Tonkin (who played Faye Chamberlain on The Secret Circle)
  • Zanadu is now Shelley Hennig (who played Diana Meade on The Secret Circle)
    Will Potter is now Thomas Dekker (who played Adam Conant on The Secret Circle), hope you don’t mind a bit of red hair dye to look more like Willow, LOL
  • Wiz is now Gray Damon (who played Lee LaBeque on The Secret Circle)

Shelley HennigNext, let’s take a look at the “So You Think You Can Vamp” cast:

“Places everyone. Quiet please,” shouted host Bom Tergeron. With that, the judges, KarAnna, Blen & Runo from DWSDS and Ligel Nitchgow & Murph Mare from SYTYCV with special guest judge Triple T Debs took their places at the Judges Table.

  • For Mare Thomas DekkerMurph, I would recommend an actress who can dance such as Summer Glau.  We’ve seen her dance in episodes of Firefly, Angel and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  She is a bit young to be Mare, but I bet she can shout HOT TAMALE TRAIN just like Mary!
  • For Ligel Nitchgow, I would recommend Anthony Steward Head from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  Anthony is only 5 years younger than the “real” Nigel, so that would be perfect.  What is he up to these days anyway?
  • For Bom Tergeron, I would recommend Sean Maher from Firefly, Warehouse 13 and The Playboy Club.  He is 20 years younger than the “real” Tom but with a bit of gray hairs (ala George Clooney), he will look very handsome.Gray Damon

Kat Dealy replaced Rook Rurke as the co-host alongside Bom Tergeron for the 3000 Vampire Olympics Finals.  “Welcome Hepcats to our 3000 Vampire Olympic Finals. Let’s give a big hand to our JEEJEDGES,” announced Kat as the Special Guest judges took their seat. Bom cracked and said, “No one can understand your cockney British accent Kat, why don’t you just say: Judges?”

  • ForSummer Glau Kat Dealy, I would recommend Kaley Cuoco from Charmed and The Big Bang Theory.
  • For Rook Rurke, I would recommend Morena Baccarin from Firefly, V and Serenity,

Wow!  I just can’t get Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly out of my head.  I love ANYTHING by the master producer JOSS WHEDON!!!

VampireDancer1A fictional tale of dances from the 1900s-2010s

Part 1: Dancing makes you Buff! the 1900s

“Places everyone. Quiet please,” shouted host Bom Tergeron. With that, the judges, KarAnna, Blen & Runo from DWSDS and Ligel Nitchgow & Murph Mare from SYTYCV with special guest judge Triple T Debs took their places at the Judges Table.

Bom said it is time to explain the rules for this very special year 3000 Vampire Olympics that happens every 10 years. This year’s competition included the following categories:

The winners from 2090, the Collins (LaBelle, Jack, Ed, Lisa and Barnaby), were on hand to pick the Location and Year for this year’s competition.

LaBelle took the mic and announced that the Year will be 1900 and the Location will be St. Louis, MO. Each team had 1 hour for each competition (Vampire Defense, Best Power and Shifting), with 10 TrekCaptainsminutes to prepare for each challenge.

First each team has a 10 minute limit to use their Best Power to shift them into the time and place for the event. Once they arrive, they must “Glamour” the location so that no ordinary citizens can view the guests from the future.

After all judges and audience members have teleported there to view, then each team can start the first competition – Vampire Defense.

The Judges will eliminate 1 of the 7 teams during the 10 minute intermission using a combination of their scores and the audience votesMarilyn3
The remaining 6 teams will now compete in the Best Power competition.
The Judges will eliminate 1 of 6 teams during the last 10 minute intermission.
The remaining 5 teams will now compete in the Strongest Shifter competition.
The Judges will eliminate 1 of 5 teams after the Shifter competition.
The remaining 5 teams will go to the Semi-Finals.

TwilightTo ensure that there would absolutely be no CHEATING, a special enforcement team of Super Witches will oversee all Glamour, potions, spells, voodoo and seeing past and future events. Just, then very charming ladies took the stage. LaBelle said, “May I present our Special Witch Police for the Vampire Olympics: Meddling Granny, Prunes, Pippa, Feeble and Pageant! Don’t these ladies look charming?”

The crowded went wild with excitement, especially since Meddling Granny and Prunes had not died in the Alternate Universe.

Bom said, “Let the 3000 Vampire Olympics competition begin!”Charmed

The 7 Teams passed the Torch from team to team and then Bom lit the cauldron with the torch flame.

Then Meddling Granny announced that it was time for each team to use their Super powers to take their team back iBrideFrankensteinn time to St. Louis, MO in 1900.

Team Butchers & Bakers were the first team to arrive in St. Louis. They had an advantage since Big Daddy had family there in town. So they were quite familiar with the town and townsfolk. Granny Smith laughed as she saw the ladies of that time wearing those God-awful heavy dresses. She remembered wearing those dresses how hot they were during the summer. Big Daddy and Granny visited their relatives, who taught them a quick dance. The dance will come in handy during the competition because it was from the 1900s.

The Glamour Dancers and Voodoo Dancers from the other teams were planning to use dances from the 1900s as well to impress the judges. They studied from Loie Fuller and other dancer greats who taught them Ballroom and Tango dances.

TangoEach team can get 2 extra points for great dancing skills shown during each 3 parts of the competition. So dance was very important if you wanted to win.

The first team, Le Monsters, took the stage to show off their Vampire Defense Skills. This team had been around the longest but their killings skills were campy, old school and stale. Then it was time for the Mutant Weirdoes. This team had actually set the pace for any other Genre Team that followed. The Collins, Charming Special Witch Police and Diary of the Mad Vamps had all copied and imitated their style to become cult favorites.

The Mutant Weirdoes had a special skill of “Trash Talking” and using a certain slang and cracking jokes whilst vanquishing the vampires. They easily won the Buffy ParkVampire Defense Competition.

The worst team in Vampire Defense was The Braden Hunchbacks. There was too much bickering during the Vampire Defense, with Jane shouting, “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha” while she froze time. Then they had the nerve to try to vanquish a vamp while posing on a staircase. That move was so out of style from 1969. They were loudly booed as they were eliminated and thrown out.

Next came the Best Power Competition. The Turd Blue team Elvis2showed a fantastic tree offering and transformation into a Dionysus-worshipping Maenad. The crowd went wild and the ratings soared for their sponsor GoHoBos. The ladies in the audience swooned when Pelvis sang the song “Bad Things” and transformed it to a chant for Snookie, “I want to do real bad things to you.” The ladies just loved hearing him say, “Snookie” in that sexy, Deep South twang.

TrueBlood3

The Spare Tracks team did awful in the Best Power category. They tried to transform an audience member into a Borg by chanting, “Resistance is Futile.” But the audience member was listening to music from their IPod so the transformation did not work.. So the Spare Track team members begin turning on each other and shouting insults like, “Bill why didn’t you sit on that vamp and smash him. Archie why didn’t you leap into that into audience member and pretend to be a Borg? Way to go Archie, you have lost all of our cult followers now!” The crowd booed “Beam them up Snotty” as the team teleported away from the competition.Janeway

The final category was Best Shape Shifter. The Diary of the Mad Vamps team easily won this category. They shifted into their versions of doubles from the Alternate Universe. But not only that, they conjured the St. Louis Arch fromborg the year 1967, since the competition was held in the same location, but it hadn’t been built yet. To top that off, they showed the judges a time relapse movie of the Arch as it was being planned from a model from 1947 to 1963. Then they showed a mirror image of the 1967 Arch next to the 2067 Arch. The judges gave them extra points since the Arch from 2067 was copper, not green. The crowd went wild when they saw the Arch. The Diary of the Mad Vamps easily won the Best Shape Shifter category.

The ending order of the Teams for the 3 categories were:

  1. Diary of the Mad Vamps, 1st placeArch
  2. Turd Blue, 2nd place
  3. Mutant Weirdoes, 3rd place
  4. Butchers & Bakers, 4th place
  5. Spare Tracks, 5th place
  6. Braden Hunchbacks, 6th place
  7. Le Monsters, 7th place

The remaining 4 teams were very proud that they will be moving on the Semi-Finals of the Vampire Olympics.

Angela from the Mutant Weirdoes Team shouted, “Let’s get Ready to Rumble for our next Vampire Olympic Showdown in St. Louis!”

The Vampire Dancer Saga: Part 11 – Dancing with some Dead Stars 6/20/12

VampireDancer1A fictional tale of dances from the 1900s-2010s

Part 11 – Dancing with some Dead Stars, the 2000s

Sherry was so sick of her life and her house. She had recently found 3 bats in her house, one in her bedroom, one in the kids room and one that always hung around the kitchen.  Strangely enough, the bats had human faces, which creeped her out even more. If she didn’t know any better, those bat faces looked strangely like her grandkids. Have they been playing around with the Glamour so they could fly around and frighten their grandma?

She needed a much needed vacation. Just get away from her house and stressful job for just one weekend. Not that she didn’t love her family and especially her beloved grandkids, Dragon Ball Booga, VuDaje and Tuppers. But the boredom of day-to-day was too much to handle.

The bat in her kitchen tried to communicate with her. It said, “Don’t forget to use Great Granny’s Glamour Alicia Keyspotion.” Sherry remembered how much fun it was when Leana used the Glamour on her when she was kid. She still had a little bag left of the potion and wanted to use it in the most fun way as possible.

Sherry had already dabbled using the potion to Glamour her favorite dancers, like Triple T Debs and Elly Powers. She would often “jump” into their films or TV shows pretending to be them and then teaching their dance moves to her granddaughters after the Glamour.

She had also Glamoured herself onto her favorite Dance Show, So you think you can Vamp, where a human dance pro was partnered with a Celebrity Vampire Dancer.

But now she was bored with SYTYCV and wanted to move on to bigger pastures, like: Dancing with Some Dead Stars.

BeyounceThis year’s season was sort of boring. Beryl Cerk grinding against Sexy Bill with her Lap Dances. The first Lesbian couple Putrid Android with Donna Drivel. And Herek Duff having the NERVE to have Marlene Moonos imitate a VAMPIRE! Sherry knew that would piss certain kinfolk off.

Sherry decided to “Glamour” herself onto the show so she could dance with super sexy Valentino Charming. She could not stand his brother, Mad Prince Charming, but had Baby Boy on her mind 24/7.

But how to get rid of his current partner? Hmmm, not the first time that Sherry had Glamoured onto a TV or Movie star. It always helped to have a similar name or look. Also, have a “temporary” coffin ready to “Glamour the “victim” into sleeping 4-12 weeks until the end of the show’s season.

Sherry Glamoured into Jheri. The Ladies stared each other down. “Who in the hell are you?” Jheri demanded as she faced her mirror image. “I am borrowing you for just a few weeks, so sleep my pretty!” With those words, the Glamour took effect and Jheri fell fast asleep. Sherry moved her into the coffin and Glamoured the coffin to be invisible.

Valentino knocked on Jheri’s dressing room door and said it’s time to rehearse now. Sherry, as Jheri, said, “I’ll be right there.”Lady Gaga

They rehearsed the Foxtrot, their 1st dance of the Season. They got a score of 23 during the Live show, which really insulted Sherry. She thought they could do much better. So she planned to Glamour the judges, KarAnna, Blen and Runo. Gia predicted they would get a 23 and 24 in the following weeks, so Sherry made sure to Glamour the Judges into giving her 10-10-10 instead.

Sherry and Valentino were at the Top of the Leaders Board. They seemed poise to make it to the Semi Finals. Sherry forgot about Jheri and the limits of the Glamour Potion. Jheri woke up and told the judges about her doppelganger.

The Judges told the security guards to remove Sherry from the premises. On the 4th week with the real Jheri Sheep dancing, the judges gave them 21 which eliminated Jheri & Valentino from the competition.

Jheri was devastated! She really, really wanted to keep dancing. She became curious about how Sherry was able to convince the judges to give her perfect 10s.

JustinThe Show Hosts Bom Tergeron and Rook Rurke urged Jheri not to find Sherry. They had used Glamour to get hired to do the show. In fact, former hostesses Hanta Sarris and Calise Kanner were still locked up as vampires in Rook’s dressing room.

Caroline Braden’s ancestors were originally from England. She was a distant relative of Ligel Nitchgow from SYTYCV. Caroline had warned Ligel to never, ever hold a SYTYCV audition in St. Louis. But Ligel did not believe in superstitions.

So when they filmed the auditions for Season 1 in 2005 in St. Louis, Murph Mare screamed, “Meet us for auditions in St. Louis for SYTYCV!”

Don’t miss Part 5 (Dances of the 1940s) coming soon.

What was your favorite song, singer, dance or dancer from the 2000s?

Dance Tribute 4/27/12: Tap Dance! Who is your favorite Tap Dancer or favorite Tap Dance Routine?

 

Tap Eleanor1Dance Tribute 4/27/12: Tap Dance!

Okay, so I took tap dance lessons as a kid back in the 1960s.  Yep, I’m old.  And to this day, I can still remember that song played on the piano at Smith Sisters Dance Studio.  It was so cool having tap dance lessons with a real piano player.  I usually teach to cassettes and CDs, so most dance students don’t get a chance to study with real, live music.

Tap dance was one of my favorite dance classes.  It’s much harder than it looks.  I remember taking Flamenco dance workshops and that challenging footwork reminded me of my tap lessons.

Tap Busby1I’m a big sucker and huge fan of the old movie musicals, especially those from the 1930s.  In particular, I love seeing tap dances by Eleanor Powell, The Nicholas Brothers and Bill Bonjangles!

I had a copy of That’s Entertainment on VHS and I would watch it all the time with my granddaughters.  We have so much fun watching our favorite dance scenes and then getting up to dance along with them.  I just got That’s Entertainment parts 1, 2 & 3 on DVD (Blue-Ray, no less) and so glad that now I can just skip to my favorite scenes instead having to fast forward and rewind a VHS tape.

The movie musicals from the 1930s are my favorite.  That was the Golden Age for musicals, that has not ever been topped since.

Tap Bill1Everyone has their favorite TAP DANCERS or favorite TAP DANCE SCENES from movies or TV clips, such as Gregory Hines, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, the list goes on and on.

Here are my FAVORITE TAP DANCERS & TAP SCENES:

1.  THE QUEEN OF TAP – Eleanor Powell.  Wow can this lady dance!  She is the best tap dance soloist in the world in the history of time.  I love all of the turns, flips, kicks, stops and also creativity in mixing tap with Hula or Matador style.  Did she introduce or INVENT PASO DOBLE?

Tap Nicholas12.  THE BEST TAP DUET EVER – The Nicholas Brothers, Fayard & Harold.  Did you know that Debbie Allen, Janet Jackson & Michael Jackson studied with them?  Makes sense.  As I said before you can’t go wrong in dance if you just do what Debbie Allen does.  And Michael Jackson, what a dance perfectionist!  He could have had a career in Tap – one of the best modern day tappers.

3.  THE BEST TAP DANCE SCENE IN A MOVIE – The Gold Diggers of Hollywood, Lullaby to Broadway.  I remember the old clips of this movie and my favorite scene is Tap Busby2when they shoe the UNDERNEATH view of the 3 dudes tapping so hard, I thought they could tap their feet to death, LOL!

4.  THE CUTEST KIDS TAP DANCING – Of course Shirley Temple, tap dancing in many of her movies.  I love seeing her dance with Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.  Honorable mention to Janet Jackson tap dancing on the Jacksons Show.

5.  THE BEST MUSICAL FILM DIRECTOR OF ALL TIME – Busby Berkeley.  The man with a vision.  The man that gave you Tap Eleanor2dance and singing from a DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW.  He changed movie and musical history by inventing and  reinventing musicals.

I had  a day off work today and spent many hours viewing some of my past favorite tap dancers.  It was so much fun watching so I would like to share my favorite tap dancers and tap dance scenes with you:

 

 

 

Tap Busby3

Tap Nigel1

 

 

One of my favorite dances by Eleanor Powell, the Queen of Tap!

WOW!  I love it whenever I watch this clip.  One of the best all-time dance scenes ever!  Thrilling!  I can’t believe the jump/splits on the stairs.  And how close they were to the musicians, I thought one dude was gonna be kicked in the head LOL.

 

 

 

 

I LOVE this dance!  So creative to mix Hula & Tap.  Love the turns and quick stops in the turns.  Fabulous!

It’s good to see a Show Judge “PRACTIC WHAT THEY PREACH” by showing that they really can dance!  Nigel, you think you can dance, YOU CAN DANCE!  I hope they show  more of Nigel dancing and choreographing dances in future episodes of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!

Again, a great mix of dance styles, this time tap & Paso Doble.  By the way, you don’t see this style very often in old movie musicals.  Did Eleanor Powell introduce Paso Doble for future Ballroom Dance?

Love watching Mr. Tap, Bill Bojangles Robinson.  I watch this with  my granddaughters and they get up and imitate Shirley Temple.  They are as cute as she is.

Check the 3 dudes tapping real hard at 1:50.  Damn!  They are tapping their asses off!  I love how they show the 3 viewpoints, the front view, overhead and UNDERNEATH so you can see the shoes tapping.  The shoes tapping is one of my favorite, favorite dance scenes.

 

This is PRICELESS!  My favorite singing group the Jackson 5 with Janet, LaToya & Rebbie TAP DANCING with The NICHOLAS BROTHERS!!!  Michael is really holding his own and is a damn good tapper.  And Janet is just so cute!!!

 

 

 

I love the Jackson 5 show because it had contemporary favorites like their hit songs.  But the best thing about the show was that it allowed the Jackson Family to branch out and show a WIDE VARIETY of music and dance styles.  The talented Jackson Family was not LIMITED to doing the songs from their time, I loved when they did OLD HOLLYWOOD STYLE and did it GREAT!  The scene at 6:16 is sort of like a PREMONITION of SMOOTH CRIMINAL, LOL.

Bill Bonjangles is tearing those steps up!  Wow!  He is the King of Rhythm!  And little Shirley Temple is CUTE AS A BUTTON!

 

Gregory Hines does the SHIM SHAM dance in one of my favorite movies, The History of the World: Part I

 

Sammy Davis Jr. still going strong in 1990 with Gregory Hines!

Who is your favorite Tap Dancer or favorite Tap Dance Routine?

Dance Choreographer Tribute 2/13/12: Napoleon & Tabitha “NappyTaps” (Sherman Oaks, CA). What is your favorite dance by the Napoleon & Tabitha “NappyTaps”? Does Lady Gaga hate NappyTaps?

NappyTaps1Dance Choreographer Tribute 2/13/12: Napoleon & Tabitha “NappyTaps” (Sherman Oaks, CA)

I love shows like So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars so much.  Why?  Because it gives professional, amateur and celebrity (sometimes non-dancers) a chance to dance and shine with the best choreographers and dancers in the country.

When I watch both shows, I know in advance that I am watching and waiting for my favorite dancers and choreographers to shine.  On Dancing with the Stars I know that anything “touched” by Louie Van Amstel, Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Chelsie Hightower, Mark Ballas and Lacey Schwimmer is going to please and entertain me, regardless of their partners.

And on So You Think You Can Dance, my favorite choreographers are Doriana Sanchez, Napoleon & Tabitha  AKA NappyTaps,  Sonya Tayeh, Tony Meredith & Melanie LaPatin and Nakul Dev Mahajan.  I am usually ALWAYS going to love their choreography, unless the dancer really, really screw it up.  Some other choreographers that I enjoy on the show are Travis Wall, Tyce Diorio, Mandy Moore &  Nigel Lythgoe.  Wait, what – Nigel Lythgoe???  Nigel is brilliant when he choreographs and performs Tap Dance!!!  Tyce “stopusingthesamestepsandmakingtheBroadwaydanceslookjustlikeBobFossechoreographies” Tyson!

I am so glad that SYTYCD makes Disco and Bollywood Dance available for the masses and allows these unique dance forms on the show.  I hope they add Belly Dance to show show one day, Nigel – hint, hint!

I was SHOCKED when I watched an episode of SYTYCD last July when Lady Gaga was a guest Judge.  Boy, she really did not like Napoleon & Tabitha (NappyTaps)!  She was hating on them and talking trash.  I wonder why?  But more importantly that was not the time and place to air any personal grudges.  I thought it was very unprofessional and as an audience member, I felt very uncomfortable when she starting her negative comments.

What did they do to piss off Lady Gaga?  And why is she hating on NappyTaps? Does anyone know?

By the way, I love the new show Mobbed, featuring choreography by the darling and talented dance duo NappyTabs, be sure to catch it this week on FOX.
