Strictly Ballroom Musical in the Works


Technorati is fantastic for discovering all sorts of random information. Lately, type “ballroom dancing” into their search engine and it’s all about Dancing with the Stars. Specifically, it’s all about:

What wonderful, inspiring ballroom dance content to have out there in the blogoverse getting top hits and 700+ authority scores from Technorati. Come on people .

Thankfully, the top hit is a blog post of real interest to those who love ballroom dancing. Strictly Ballroom the Musical is in development and (hopefully) will soon be coming to a theater near you.

Given the recent success of ballroom inspired touring shows like Burn the Floor,  the cult popularity of Baz Luhrmann’s 1992 cult classic, and the growing interest in ballroom dancing in general, this show is going to be a smash hit.

According to Deadline Newyork, Luhrmann is planning to hold a creative workshop in Sydney, Australia in December 2010, in preparation for bringing the musical to the stage.

I can’t wait.

Show me your Paso Doble. Show me your Paso Doble!
