The Steps To Reconstruction

 

Licensing:
We secure the choreography and music rights from a selected musical theater show.

 

Stagers:
We engage the original choreographer or qualified stager to reconstruct the dance.

 

Dancers:
We select the dancers and featured performers, if needed, for rehearsal and performance.

 

Musicians: 
A musical director and necessary musicians are booked to reproduce the original music for rehearsals and performance.

 

Rehearsal Space:
We begin the rehearsal process in a dance studio with dancers, stagers, and rehearsal pianists.

 

Videography and Photography:
We capture the process of rehearsal and performance.

 

Costumes: 

We costume the dancers appropriately and present the finished piece to a live audience.
