Gotta Dance

Gotta Dance

One remarkable dance team. One big chance. One small twist. You gotta be over 60. Gotta Dance is the incredible true story of ten determined dreamers who audition to dance at half time for a major NBA team. They have three things in common: they love to dance, they have something to prove, and they are all over 60. It isn’t until they make the cut that they find out they won’t be dancing tap, salsa or swing—they are going to bring down the house with a style that’s entirely new to them: hip hop.

With a book by Tony Award-nominee Chad Beguelin (Aladdin) and Tony Award-winner Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), 14 original songs by Tony and Emmy Award-nominee Matthew Sklar (Elf) and lyrics by Tony Award-nominee Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), with additional music by Marvin Hamlisch (an Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Oscar winner), and direction and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), Gotta Dance played an extended run through January 17, 2016, at Broadway In Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre (18 W Monroe St, Chicago). It opens on Broadway in the Fall of 2016.
