Dancer #1: Me, as the line captain here at Legends of this venue, our choreographers from Vegas will send out video footage for me to learn, along with all the audio I need as well, and I will learn all the choreography, and then teach it to everybody.
It would take me a week or two to learn all the choreography, and then I will go ahead and hold a week or two rehearsal here with them. Basically, everything is pretty much choreographed just as much on stage as it is back stage. Sometimes we are running back and forth, sometimes we have a 30-second quick change, sometimes the guys are changing and the girls are out on stage, there’s just a lot of action back here just as much.
Dancer #2: Controlled mayhem is how I like to call it.
Dancer #1: We are here everyday before the show having rehearsals. I think usually they’ll do a cleanup rehearsal every once in a while: notes, we will watch the video of ourselves to that we can see how clean we are. After that, then, once the show is in, it’s great. We do a really good job of keeping the show fresh every single night.
Dancer #2: We are a team and we are very tight-knit. We talk things through.
Dancer #1: I think every department does a very good job at this venue. I think we all work really hard. I think everyone works really well with each other. From production to the tech crew to the ushers and everybody upfront, everyone just really works well together and everyone is like a family here.
Dancer #3: I like the friendly competition. From the band and the dancers, we compete to see who can entertain the crowd more.
Dancer #1: I think the thing we enjoy about the show is that it’s constantly changing and the genres are changing even with each set that we do within one show. So you can go from country to hip hop to something contemporary to something old school, like last year we were doing some crooner stuff. So it’s nice that it can constantly change. I think we enjoy the fact that the show not only changes four times a year, but throughout entire two hours that you’re here watching the show.
Well, thank you for talking with us, come check us out. We will see you soon. It’s a fun show. I guarantee you’re going to have a good time.
Dancer #2: Guarantee it!
