The show actually will teach you the specific dance moves to the songs that are playing, and eventually volunteers are picked to show their moves on stage!


The stage is located in the front and center of the 'arena' but the friendly layout allows for everyone to take part of the show.

Rather than having chairs from front to back, benches are scattered all over giving it a concert-like feel.

This also encourages people to even just feel comfortable dancing in place.

This show is unique as they're playing modern-era songs throughout the show and the crew does a great job walking out to engage with the crowd.

As kids, teenagers and adults are more likely to all know the modern songs that are being played, it brings a great bonding experience as they get together to sing (and dance).
