Open Call to Join the Dance
Keigwin + Company is currently touring Hawaii. In between-performances, they are resting up, for what they know will be an intense and demanding residency at DANCEworks in February.
The residency will launch with an Open Call on Tuesday, February 12, 6-9 PM at the Lobero Theatre. We are inviting the public to join the company in making an irresistible new music video that is expected to go viral as soon as it hits youtube! The cast of professional dancers will be joined by dozens of Santa Barbara residents, young and old. The group will dance in front of stunning backdrops throughout picturesque Santa Barbara. See below:
Handsome, charming and witty choreographer Larry Keigwin will work intensively for one week with locals to make a video that will promote the company’s Lobero Theatre performances on March 1, 2. It is expected to “go viral” within a few hours of being posted on Youtube, making all participants instantly recognizable. The video will be screened at the Lobero performances as well as on multiple websites and Facebook.
Anyone who’s worked with Larry before, will tell you this will be a not-to-be-missed-chance-of-a-lifetime, never-to-be-missed experience! Starr Siegele, expresses it well:
You’ll need to commit to the whole package in order to participate. Make lame excuses, coerce family or co-workers but make it your priority to join the DANCworks fun! Your friends and family (a.) will, (b.) should, (c.) might or (d.) might not understand your sudden urge to make entertainment history. Don’t waver. Enlist them too!
