The 1970s and 1980s are hailed as the golden era producing a collection of some of the greatest classic dance movies of all time. What A Feeling is a celebration of that era paying tribute to doted- upon movies such as Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Flash Dance, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Fame and White Nights.
Strobe lights and disco balls come out to play for the true experience. With the use of projected clips of the films on to three white screens, each film acts as scenes to the storyline as each one gets danced and acted out.
True to the nature of the venue, the show is sexy, thanks to the gorgeous bodies and costumes that are presented.
Ladies clad in bustiers and colourful costumes like polka dot skirts, blonde wigs and leotards to the men with the signature John Travolta white suits, the costumes are well thought out and complements each movie theme.
It is the outstanding performance of the six dancers that make the magic of show. Splits on chairs, robotic moves in work overalls and acrobatics are some of the moves that wow the audience.
Adding their voices to the electric performance are Riyaan Cornelius and Nadine Sisam.
The pitch-perfect renditions of the classics How Deep Is Your Love, Hopelessly Devoted and Tell Me More is delivered heartfelt.
Sisam has that light tone of Olivia Newton-John which makes for winning deliveries. Cornelius’s She’s Like The Wind is an item to look out for too as the rendition coupled with the brilliant dance duet is mesmerising.
And then there’s the hilarity of She’s A Maniac, which dishes up plenty laughs as the guys take on female personas.
Time is no factor when watching the show as it is so entertaining. You’ll want to dust off those old classics buried in your cupboards and watch all over again, just for old time’s sake.
• Doors open at 8pm and the show starts at 8.30pm. Tickets at Computicket, R78 each.
