Licensing Company: MTI
Do You Wanna Dance?
Bust a move and shake your groove thing with the folks of SnapHappy, Ohio, as they fight the power against the dreaded “dance tax.”
This licensed version was created just for the secondary licensing market with no professional productions.
There are 2 keyboard books for this jukebox musical show but only Keyboard 2 has any programming. Keyboard 1 is a PC so it is designed to be played and conducted from the keyboard. There are performance tracks available by MTI if you do not have live musicians available.
Keyboard 2 does have some light programming. The patches vary from Synth leads to organs as well as strings and EP’s. This book can be played by an advanced high school student who is comfortable with groove rhythms and can play in many key signatures.
You’ll be dancing in the streets with this brand new musical created just for student performers about the power of working together and following your dreams. Do You Wanna Dance? is a musical romp featuring all of your favorite songs from the past decades combined with an uplifting and inspiring story.
Singing and dancing is what draws everyone to the town of SnapHappy, Ohio, in May of 1995 to meet Mayor Pete’s new wife, Mona Lightfoot. But after she literally pulls the plug on the May Day celebration, the politics of dancing start to take the snap out of happy. Delaney, Chad, Lucas, Emma and all of the SnapHappy kids are shocked when they hear that a new “dance tax” has been levied on anyone who dances in town. While their “boogie down” parents try to cope with the new tax, all of the kids come together and take a stand.
