WHO: 1000 dancers (600 women and 400 men). All are same age (early 20’s). All slender, with average build. All have blond hair and blue eyes. All are smiling for the duration of the dance.
WHERE: Large stadium with enough room for 1000 performers. The audience views performance from overhead. Wrigley Stadium would work.
WHY: To celebrate the strength and glory of our great nation, the United States of America. Performed as opening ceremony for special event such as sporting event, Memorial Day, or inauguration.
Enter: 600 women from opposite sides of the stadium. They form 6 lines. All are holding tennis rackets.
Lines 1 & 2 come in closer to one another. 3 & 4 and 5 & 6 do the same. They step close together, then out, close together, then out
The dancers frolick into concentric circle configuration. On the way, they put their racquets down.
Women hold hands. They begin side-stepping. Each circle moves in the opposite direction as the circles closest to it. Still holding hands, the women begin folding forward and backward, each circle alternating directions. All turn and face out. Girls perform **short choreography that includes salutes and other patriotic movements.
Once again the girls form 6 lines and run off the same way they entered
Starting from crouching position, they perform **Men of Our Country dance
Men march off to get weights. They return and perform **short weight dance
Enter: 600 women from all 4 sides. They join the formation of men, creating rows within the rows. All are close together.
Moving as a mass, they create a human fountain. In the middle of fountain, men lift women on their shoulders to create the impression of water erupting from the center. The human fountain pulses in and out as entire group performs choreography stepping close together, then out.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
