YouTube videos of the “Do-Re-Me” dance in Antwerp’s Central Station
|| 3/26/2009 || 2:50 pm || 1 Comment Rendered || ||

Last month I created a Facebook group called Washington Metropolitan Area Residents For A 24 Hour Metro. Each week or so I’ve been sending members of the group different subway related YouTube videos- ranging from Improv Everywhere’s Subway Art Gallery Opening to Toronto’s subway dance party. Last night I came across another iteration of the faux-flash-mob-that-decides-to-dance-in-a-train-station-meme and decided to share it with the group. It features 200 well-choreographed dancers getting down to a remix of Julie Andrews singing Do-Re-Me from the musical The Sound of Music in Antwerp’s Central Station. Similar to the efforts behind the T-Mobile video, I believe the motivation behind this video is related to the promotion of the Belgian theatrical version of “Looking for Maria” or “Op zoek naar Maria,” which is based on the Sound of Music.


Below is the behind the scenes video and two different perspectives of the dance:

Tango in the DC Metro – YouTube Video of Federico Aubele’s “Tan Dificil”
|| 11/12/2008 || 1:28 pm || 1 Comment Rendered || ||

I absolutely love this video. Directed by my friend Robin Bell, it features my favorite track from Federico Aubele‘s most recent studio album Panamericana, and showcases local dancers Sharna Fabiano and Isaac Oboka doing the tango in the Washington, DC Metro. Sharna teaches an intro to tango class at the 18th Street Lounge on Tuesdays at 8pm and the song is also available on iTunes.
