Outdoor cinema experts, Rooftop Film Club, have announced the return of Dance Week with a toe-tapping, thigh slapping movie line-up celebrating the silver screen’s most iconic movers and shakers at Roof East, Stratford. From Baby’s iconic lift to the pelvic thrusts of Magic Mike, Dance Week - starting on Tuesday 23rd August - will encourage guests to cut loose in the aisles before, after and even during the screening helped along by dance instructors from the famous Pineapple Dance Studios.
To help guests channel their inner Tatum prior to the screening, Pineapple Studio’s resident choreographer Kira Bishop will be hosting 30 minute rooftop tutorials tailored to each movie and open to Rooftop Film Club tickets and Bussey Bar guests alike. Kicking off the week is rooftop favourite Dirty Dancing (23rd August), nobody puts Baby in the corner, but how about a rooftop? Guest can practice their best spirit fingers with Bring it On(25th August) and remember, it’s not a democracy, it’s a cheerocracy. It’s a Channing double with Magic Mike (24th August) and Step Up(27th August) so whether it’s stepping up to the streets or the stage, there’s dancing Tatum in a vest for everyone. On the Friday learn how to boogie and ballet like Billy Elliot (26th August) dance your frustrations away to A Town Called Malice under the stars.
Guests will also enjoy a bespoke Dance Week cocktail menu concocted by the Roof East’s unforgettable Spirited Mixers team– featuring flavoursome floor fillers such as the Bellini Elliot and Baby’s Rooftop Rumba.
