ONE REMARKABLE DANCE TEAM. ONE BIG CHANCE. ONE SMALL TWIST... YOU'VE GOT TO BE OVER 60!
MAY 31–JUL 1, 2018
From the director/choreographer of Kinky Boots comes the incredible true story of ten ordinary New Jersey seniors with extraordinary dreams who audition to dance at halftime for a major basketball team. Only after making the cut do they learn they won't be dancing tap, salsa, or swing—instead, they will bring down the house with a style that is entirely new to them: hip-hop. Take the uplifting journey with these dreamers—and the young coaches who inspire them along the way—as they battle self-doubt, stereotypes, and even each other for a chance to bust a move at center court in front of 20,000 screaming fans. Together they remind us that in life, when the odds are stacked against you and the challenges seem too great to overcome, it's not the end of the game—it's Half Time.
