Sometimes You Feel Like Dancin'

Every once in a while I prowl around You Tube and discover buried treasure. As luck would have it, I was seeking Neil Diamond's "Crunch Granola Suite" for a comment at another site and lo and behold, there was the version below. It is from Bob Fosse's musical "Dancin'". If you have never seen a production either in the original tour in 1978/79 or in revival, it is a series of dances to a variety of compositions. Each one is remarkable for the talent and energy required of the dancers and contains some of Mr. Fosse's best choreography.

I first saw Dancin' thirty years ago in Los Angeles, and remember that evening vividly, so kick back, turn up your speakers and look at all the beautiful people doing phenominal work. If you want to see some of the other numbers from the show, just follow the handy links:

Fantastic! I've always enjoyed Fosse's work. These dancers were tremendous.
