2012 September Challenge

The challenge for this month is.......Musicals!!! We have done movie themes before but never Musicals, so this should be fun! Thank you Saphyre for the suggestion.

Just putting it out there, I have been building myself up to have some "balls" and post a video one of these days. It's going to take a lot to get that courage up, and I mean a lot! BUT, if I do actually grow a pair of brass (or in my case, chrome) it's going to be to Phantom of the Opera Dubstep style. Already have the music, just need the courage. =p ;)

Ninjachic, you should know by now that you are in a safe place! We all have that insecurity and I still remember posting my first video. It wasn't that long ago! I love Phantom! What a great choice! Just go for it, and if you're still not comfortable with posting it now, perhaps you will be some day..xoxo

here I was thinking of straight up going for a musical and not a remix. must pore over the internetz now.

and I know I could still just do a normal musical song but it would probably end up being disney and also I'd just be singing the whole time. that might happen with any song. I did have thoughts of freestyling to my own cover of something but I've never finished one. :-)

@ninjachic I finally posted a video last month and everyone was super supportive about it. I was worried at first (no comments within 5 minutes!! haha) but I guess this community doesn't let you down. I hereby hand you some invisible e-chrome-balls.

Why oh why don't i have a pole at home!!! Curses!

You don't have to use a pole, we've had members do a chair dance, hoop or even just floorwork. We are not too picky about it. [www.studioveena.com] lol

I got one, I got one!  It'll be my 1st challenge and 1st home video post.  It's both a movie and a musical, both of which I don't care for and hence an extra challenge. 

The bf agreed to video and he just gave me the details about the scene when the song takes place.  He loves and has seen both the movie and musical, so it won't seem like such a chore for him to be involved...cuz we all know how some of our bfs have become de-sensitized by pole ; )

I am thinking maybe doing Rock of Ages. That would be fun. I have never done musicals to a floor work, pole or any dance for that matter.

Okay, I have made my choice. I think I'll do this one at my studio, so it may be a bit! So excited!! It brings back such memories! (Oh, and it's not "Memory" from "Cats")

It'd be awfully fun to do a song and scene from the musical Wicked!

Just when I thought I had a song picked out you had to mention Wicked haha. =P

I need to find a new way to record though...

Just wanted to let you ladies know that I was looking around for music for this challenge and spotify seems to have almost every musical soundtrack I looked for.

Oh, Hazelnut! I was almost going to do one from Jesus Christ Superstar, but I picked something else. You can find the music on iTunes or Spotify.

Got my song picked out, got some room to pratice and work on the moves to it. A musical is something new. Here's to fun.

Dang it. I think I changed my mind on my song pick. Remembered one that is very inspirational. Short, but powerful...

I have a question...are you limiting this to broadway musicals or can it be a showtune from a movie musical as well?

It could be either I'm to too picky :)

I think it's awesome that the pole preformance that aired on So You Think You Can Dance fits the SV theme! Eliana and Tiffany performed to a song from the musical Chicago. Here is a link to the youtube video (although it's been posted on here in another forum, thought it might be inspirational for the ladies participating in this month's challenge!)

My pole down right now. So I was wondering I do floor/chair instead of pole as long as it goes with the theme?

@ Juicy Jenn, Yes, you don't have to use a pole
