ACT ONE: Flappers and Fun. (male and female mixed)
(approx 7 minutes long)
Our show begins with the very well known dance from the 1920s, The Charleston. These quirky dancers, dressed in black, fringed outfits, enter the room with the traditional, high energy Charleston dance, moving in a group to the main stage where they playfully dance The Charleston. The mood then shifts to a sultry solo vocalist singing Where the wind blows, where a stunning solo vocalist roves in between your guests serenading your guests and creating a little flirtatious comic relief to remember. Finishing with some fun, the floorshow builds to a climax, celebrating the Roaring '20s with an upbeat, commercial Charleston routine to the new rendition of Crazy In Love from The Great Gatsby.
ACT TWO: Gangstas and Grins
(approx 7 minutes long)
This section of the show opens with the fabulous Puttin' On The Ritz, a playful show routine with the ubiquitous hats and canes and incorporating faux tap dancing, humour and optional interaction with your guests. Puttin' On The Ritz is a timeless classic written and published in 1929 by Irving Berlin, from the 1930 musical of the same name. The title derives from the American slang expression, referring to people who would dress up very fashionably and socialise at the swanky Ritz Hotel...kind of Gangnam Style for the '20s. The original version of Berlin's song makes mocking reference to the fad of the time of the flashily-dressed, but poor, black Harlemites who would parade up and down the infamous Lenox Avenue (now known as Malcolm X Boulevard), true to the lyrics in the song: "Spending ev'ry dime / For a wonderful time".
Our show then shoots forward to the present-day release of The Great Gatsby and the track Bang Bang; a song that fuses the '20s with the ‘now’. Finishing on an upbeat high, A Little Party Never Killed Nobody, another Great Gatsby release, our performers continue the gangster feel with an energetic ‘commercial dance’ style routine. The dancers will also offer your guests to opportunity to dance with them at the conclusion of the routine, and encourage them to experience the feel, fun and flair of the 1920s .

Complete Description of our '1920s Chicago tribute - Charleston and Vaudeville dancers' Floor Show:
Chicago is a 1920s musical set in prohibition-era Chicago. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of the Criminal Justice system relating to criminal cases involving celebrities. The musical is based on actual criminals and crimes that were reported on by journalist, Maurine Dallas Watkins. Maurine follows and reports on the 1924 trials of the murderesses, Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner for the Chicago Tribune.
Bob Fosse choreographed the original production but then it was brought back in the mainstream eyes of millions with the Academy Award winning film version in 2002, directed by Rob Marshall. The musical took life once again and has been very popular recently, as the 1920s theme is a fun, theatrical show for any event.
The Story and journey of our Vaudeville Floor show:
Our show begins with the very well known dance from the 1920s, the ‘Charleston’. These quirky dancers, dressed In black fringed outfits, enter the room with the traditional, high energy, Charleston dance moves collecting in a group on the main stage, where they playfully do ‘the Charleston’.
In line with the musical ‘Chicago’, the show presents Velma Kelly, the Vaudevillian seductress, who murdered both her husband and her sister when she found them in bed together, as she sings “All That Jazz”.
The show then moves on to display the various ladies in their cells, who have been found guilty of killing their lovers, including chorus girl, Roxie Hart, who murdered her lover, nightclub regular, Fred Casely. The girls show their aggression and denial in the comedic dance/mime number “The Cell Block Tango”.
Our Vaudevillian, Velma's, trial date arrives and her lawyer attempts to mitigate her worries by suggesting that everything will be just fine if she makes a ‘show’ of it all and is prepared to give 'em the old “Razzle Dazzle”. This dance is performed as the grand finale and is performed with hats and canes and some ‘mime tap dancing’. One big dance number to finish the show!
