Forever Fest: Danceoke
18 and up; Children 6 and up will be allowed only with a parent guardian. No children under the age of 6 will be allowed.
This is a featured event at Forever Fest, a weekend celebration of girlie pop culture at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz.
Let’s face it: dance movies are awesome.
With innovative choreography and mind-blowing physical feats, these films prove that anything, from poverty to prejudice, can be cured through the power of dance. Things that usually matter in film, like a good script or strong acting, take a backseat to what’s really important: busting a move.
The only problem with this genre is you can’t jump up from your seat and join the dance party... until now.
We’ve partnered with GrooveFit Austin and Rain of Style to host a special Forever Fest edition of Danceoke, in which local crews compete by reenacting routines live on stage as the movie plays on the silver screen behind them.
Step up to the Ritz and watch performers bring scenes to life from CENTER STAGE, GREASE, ROMY & MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION, CHICAGO, BURLESQUE, 13 GOING ON 30, CHARLIE'S ANGELS, MEAN GIRLS and more, plus music video choreography from stars like Beyonce ("Single Ladies") and Lada Gaga ("Applause"). Mark your calendars and get ready to kick off your Sunday shoes, because you know this boogie is for real. (Sarah Pitre)
