This Friday Motor City Movement is back at the Crofoot for another night of choreography and dance. MCM began back in 2010 and this year marks the six showcase where over 20 locally and nationally recognized choreographers and dance crews come together to show off the latest and greatest choreography the Detroit dance scene has to offer through a live performance open to the public.
Several different styles of dance are represented throughout the show including hip-hop, funk, jazz, tap, contemporary and more. Featured artists will include professional choreographer & MCM co-founder Jill Zmijewski, the Detroit Pistons Dancers, Detroit Pride Cheerleaders, Detroit's sexiest ladies The Motor City Kitties, the hard hitting hoofers of the Detroit Tap Repertory under direction of Denise Caston, Producer of the renowned Motor City Tap Fest, resident of Grand Rapids and director of RAW Energy Dance Competition Crystal Ahlberg, and a special guest appearance from Detroit's own, Will Thomas, currently on tour with SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, who just recently finished in the Top 8 on the hit FOX TV show! Dancers from Oakland University, Michigan State University and Davenport University will all be represented in the show.
A night at MCM includes a live dance show, a cash bar, guest DJs and one of the biggest dance parties/dance jams in Metro Detroit. The show is hosted once again by local news personality Heather Zara. DJ Dayda will be keeping the dance party moving before and after the show till 2AM. The Paul Mitchell School of Sterling Heights will be guest stylists to all performers. This will be the third time I have attended a MCM show with each show improving on the last and always providing a unique and dazzling experience.
