  • "Why, it's Greased Lightning!"

    Yep, that's right, the beloved musical Grease is coming live to a TV near you in 2015. On the heels of NBC's live broadcasts of the Sound of Music in 2013 and Peter Pan just this week, it may seem like FOX's recreation of Grease is just another network jumping on the televised musical trend, but here are a few reasons were gaga over Grease!

    Let's start with the characters. Who can honestly say they've never dressed as the T-Birds, or the Pink Ladies? From Sandy and Danny to Rizo and Knicky, it's easy to connect with the best friends in Grease's iconic and quirky cast. While we don't know who will be filling the roles in FOX's portrayal, we can only hope they're as lovable as the original cast.

  • Since he first took to the stage as a member of the famous "Jackson 5," the music world has never been the same.

    Michael Jackson, more commonly known as "The King of Pop," was the 8th child born to the talented Jackson family in Gary, Indiana. It didn't take long for his father to realize the musical talent brooding among his young sons, and in a move that would change the music world, he molded them into the family musical group called "The Jackson Five."

    Behind the scenes, Jackson's father, Joe, pushed his sons to the limit in order to achieve success. Unfortunately, he didn't handle the pressure as well himself, often turning to violence as a motivational tactic. Despite the hostile environment behind the curtain, the Jacksons gaining a strong local following and soon relocated to Los Angeles, where they achieved great national success! Chart-topping singles like "ABC", "I'll Be There", and "I Want You Back" eventually gave Michael Jackson the recognition he needed to begin his solo career.

  • As far back as we know, dance has been one of the most common forms of human expression. From worship to celebration to mourning, dancing has has universally transcended cultural boundaries. That’s part of why we love it. The fun, the challenge, the interaction with a partner… each of these things is a part of this beautiful activity which has stood the test of time. So, no matter what you’re hoping to gain from learning to dance, you can be sure to find it, even if it takes a little practice to get there. 

  • Whether you’ve danced the Cha-Cha or not, we’ll let you in on a secret: you could do it with ease! You’ve probably heard the old phrase “One, Two, Cha-Cha-Cha”... well, it’s not much more than that!

    With roots traced back to the islands of the West Indies and making their way to America, the steps have evolved into what we now know as the Cha-Cha. In the 1950s, the Mambo and Swing became popular dances throughout the Americas. As Latin musicians began playing the Mambo to a slower beat, this stylistic change led to the creation of the triple mambo, now known as the Cha-Cha. 

    Though one of the newer ballroom dances, the Cha-Cha has gained traction in the dancing world and has become a favorite over the last few decades. Today, you can see the Cha-Cha around the world in ballroom competitions, as it is one of the most dominant “pop” rhythms of the last 40 to 50 years.
