Great Gatsby

Show

Our Gatsby Themed floorshows entwines the fun and fringing of the flappers from the unique and liberated Roaring ’20s with the glamorous Fred Astaire image. One that brought a touch of hope and a great deal of style and class to the depression era of the 1930s. We incorporate music from the new Baz Luhrmann film, The Great Gatsby and also other renditions of the great 1920s style music.

FLASH MOB GATSBY

30 minutes meet and greet plus a 6 minutes flash mob show.

This fabulous flashmob begins with two glamorously costumed dancers dressed in 1920s show girl outfits welcome your guests whilst two undercover flash mob waiters circulate amongst your guest. Suddenly, out of nowhere, our two 'waiters' grab the show girls and the flash mob floor show begins…The Flash Mob show itself is a two song, 6 minute show, and if we have availability, we can add a final surprise vocalist to the finale number of the show. Your guests will then be encouraged to take to the floor and dance with our cast members for a two song encore.

GATSBY GOLD

Two floorshows over a two hour period plus 30 minutes meet and greet.

A cast of 5-6 recommended

ACT ONE: Flappers and Fun. (male and female mixed) (approx 7 minutes long)

Our show begins with the very well known dance from the 1920s, The Charleston. These quirky dancers, dressed in black, fringed outfits, enter the room with the traditional, high energy Charleston dance, moving in a group to the main stage where they playfully dance The Charleston. The mood then shifts to a sultry solo vocalist singing Where the wind blows, where a stunning solo vocalist roves in between your guests serenading your guests and creating a little flirtatious comic relief to remember. Finishing with some fun, the floorshow builds to a climax, celebrating the Roaring '20s with an upbeat, commercial Charleston routine to the new rendition of Crazy In Love from The Great Gatsby. This floorshow can be performed with only dancers also.

1. Charleston Interlude
2. Where the wind Blows
3. Crazy In Love


ACT TWO: Gangstas and Grins (approx 7 minutes long)

This section of the show opens with the fabulous Puttin' On The Ritz, a playful show routine with the ubiquitous hats and canes and incorporating faux tap dancing, humour and optional interaction with your guests. Puttin' On The Ritz is a timeless classic written and published in 1929 by Irving Berlin, from the 1930 musical of the same name. The title derives from the American slang expression, referring to people who would dress up very fashionably and socialise at the swanky Ritz Hotel...kind of Gangnam Style for the '20s. The original version of Berlin's song makes mocking reference to the fad of the time of the flashily-dressed, but poor, black Harlemites who would parade up and down the infamous Lenox Avenue (now known as Malcolm X Boulevard), true to the lyrics in the song: "Spending ev'ry dime / For a wonderful time".

Our show then shoots forward to the present-day release of The Great Gatsby and the track Bang Bang; a song that fuses the '20s with the ‘now’. Finishing on an upbeat high, A Little Party Never Killed Nobody, another Great Gatsby release, our performers continue the gangster feel with an energetic ‘commercial dance’ style routine. The dancers will also offer your guests to opportunity to dance with them at the conclusion of the routine, and encourage them to experience the feel, fun and flair of the 1920s .
