Dance Duo - Mr.Big Stuff
Dance Duo-Mr. Big Stuff
Here Sloane and Hale are doing a dance duet to Mr. Big Stuff. Sloane is dressed as the guy, “Mr. Big Stuff”. There are not as many boys as girls in dance, which often means girls need to play the part of guys. You can see half of our group dressed as vampire guys in our Prom Night performance.
The Mr. Big Stuff song was a big hit in 1971, and is sung by Jean Knight. The costumes and hair styles are typical 70’s style fashion – very groovy man!
It takes months of rehearsal to get a dance routine polished and ready for dance competitions. We often start choreography in October or November for dance competitions that can start as early as March. Solos, duets and trios are extra choreography apart from the group numbers we learn. We generally learn about 12 dances a year, but it can be less for some competitive dancers and more for others.
We had a lot of fun learning and performing this duo dance. Hope you like it too.
