Episode 3 of Midnight Violet begins with this saucy chair routine!
Originally created for multiple dancers to perform together – the solo, made-for-video version of “Up Late” gives you some lovely new vantage points to enjoy.
This was the opening act in CoralFire Cabaret’s FIRST big burlesque production. The story around the characters we played were three roommates, all waiting for their boyfriends, who are out gallivanting around town having a fantastic time, while the three lonely ladies sit up late, growing impatient as they wait and wait.
We imagined a steamy summer apartment during the Harlem Renaissance, hand-washed lingerie hanging delicately about the tiny place, the ladies lounging and fanning themselves, trying to catch even the slightest breeze.
The routine is pretty easy and was meant to be for our troupe’s newcomers. We are actually revamping it for a NEW group this summer!
Being so familiar with it, I was able to really relax and have fun making this video performance! Enjoy!
