More than a little bit country. We're not entirely sure how we feel about country music — we either love to hate it, or hate to love it. But Charleston Ballet Theatre is far more confident in their affections. With Nashville, the company celebrates that country twang, taking some of the most iconic songs from the last 50 years and squeezing them into one dance performance.
NEVER FEAR — IT ISN'T LINE DANCING. Though the dancers will definitely be donning their finest country apparel, they thankfully won't be performing repetitive line dancing. Instead, the production features moves from resident choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr, who has taken lyrics from songs like "Goodbye Earl" and "Walk the Line" and translated them into unexpected and humorous dances.
COUNTRY RADIO DIDN'T KILL THE VIDEO STAR. Each of the production's featured songs will be joined by a video component, including footage that shows the dancers frolicking about different parts of Charleston. "It's very tongue-in-cheek and there's a great sense of humor about the whole show," promises the CBT's Kyle Barnette.
