Yesterday I had the treat of seeing four performances by Rhythm Dance Company in the DanceXplosion regional in Worcester, Massachusetts, that used Squirrel Trench Audio original remixes and edits. It was a great pleasure meeting studio owner and choreographer Nicole Newman Kelley in person after working with her via email for the past several months to get her routines’ music produced.
Today’s spectacular RDC group numbers included:
Valerie ’68 by Amy Winehouse (small group jazz)
Get On the Floor, an original hip hop remix featuring On The Dancefloor with will.i.am (large group hip hop)
Glamourous, a rockin medley which starts with a cover of Glamourous Life (large group jazz)
Rhythm Nation, an original remix of the Janet Jackson classic (Production Line)
Congratulations to RDC on spectacular performances for these songs and all of the others performed this weekend.
