Dancers at Philadelphia’s High School for Creative and Performing Arts learned “Dirty Dancing” scenes from cast members currently performing in the musical, now playing at the Academy of Music.
“It’s a great experience to be able to dance it out. It’s a really good feeling,” said Briana Schulke.
“I remember seeing it in the scene, and when I get to do it, it’s amazing because they can do it and they’re bringing it back to us and we can all experience the feel of it.”
“Anytime I can get a Master Class from folks that are out there doing it, I jump at the chance,” said school dance director LaDiva Davis.
