Mr. Right Now!

Here are a couple of clips from the American TV play/musical Mr. Right Now! by David E. Talbert. It's about a woman called Angel (played by Kesha Ealy), a single mum to a teenage son who has had bad luck with men in the past. When she meets Darnell (Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs/Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs), she thinks her luck has finally changed but he turns out to be a con man. Meanwhile plumber (Chris Bolton) is waiting in the wings...

I first saw this on the TV channel BET a couple of years ago but it was actually made in 1999/2000. The play was filmed live during a performance at New York's Beacon Theatre. It has a religious message behind it about putting your faith in God rather than a man but is still entertaining if you're not religious. There are also funny moments, including Darnell's monologue and scenes between Angel's mum (Lecresia Campell) and her "love interest"! lol. If you're bored and want something to watch, I'd recommend it!

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)
