As Scrooge, McGee danced his part nicely. Despite the fact that it was presented by a professional dance company, this was not a professional performance, but rather a recital for the students of the School of CBD, with a storyline and some professional dancers thrown in. All of the dancers executed the swing numbers with excitement and energy.
Either of the two character types would have worked, as long as the choreography was consistent.
The music ranged from contemporary classical to big band swing to hard rock. Parts of the choreography were choppy as well. While a variety of music can be interesting in contemporary dance, the juxtaposition of the selections was confusing.
The nontraditional partnering and stunts performed by DekaDance were interesting and most in the audience probably would have had little exposure to that kind of movement, but the transitions between the lifts were sometimes awkward and the choreography lacked energy. The blend of swing moves, gestures, and ballet vocabulary within each movement sequence was not always smooth.
Fuentes was engaging and energetic as Bob Cratchit.
The next morning he wakes up deeply effected by the visions of the night and thankful that he gets a chance to change his life. The strongest male performance came from Brynt Beitman as a convincing Jacob Marley. He was first presented as hunched over and somewhat physically incapacitated, but as the dance progressed he performed lifts, leaps, turns and other athletic movements.
Rhys Livingston Loggins and Jeana Rebers Mosher performed a touching duet as a starving and shivering homeless couple. The story ends with a lively swing dance.
That night he is visited by the Ghost of Jacob Marley Brynt Beitman who warns him of impending visitors—the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, all of whom take him on an eye-opening journey through space and time.
However rough the choreography and production elements were, the professional dancers performed well.
The transitions between scenes were abrupt and unpolished, due to the number of blackouts and the music editing. He makes his way through town giving money to people he meets, reconciling with his family, and making amends with Bob Cratchit. She also works with non-profit organizations to provide dance education outreach.
