DANCE WITH JOHN RUA

[Thanks to Mockingbird board member Matt Sexauer for sharing this...]

John Rua, the amazing choreographer of NYE Clones and Halloween's Abe Vigoda Wombat, has agreed to teach us some new Martian Monster dance steps for the April 28 Dinner & A Movie opener. We will be setting up a Zoom link for those who want to join around 8:30 PM during the webcast to dance in unison. The goal is to surprise the band by sharing that link and subsequent video with them. If you can't join Zoom then you can always film yourself during the webcast and post to Facebook, IG, Twitter with the hashtag #MartianMonster. This community has always been a two-way street, and hopefully we can send a little fun back their way during these crazy times. So practice the dance, and we'll see you for Dinner & A Movie!

Check out the video after the jump...

• • • Hey phans, Here’s an opportunity to express your Phish Love. As the Director/Choreographer of NYE CLONES & Halloweens’ Abe Vigoda WOMBAT, I’m teaching us phans some new Martian Monster dance steps for tomorrow night’s Dinner and A Movie. It’s the opener. So, we’re setting up a zoom link for those who want to join tomorrow at 8:30pm during the webcast to dance in unison together. We will be sharing that link and subsequent video with all Phans and let’s hope, Phish gets to enjoy some time. If you don’t join zoom you can always film yourself during the webcast and post on Facebook, IG, Twitter with the tag #MartianMonster. This community has always been a two-way street and hopefully we can send a little “gag” back their way during these crazy times. • • • • • #jonrua #phish #dinnerandamovie #thegrit #sendintheclones #rescuesquad #wombat #turtleintheclouds #clones #quarantineart #tutorial #phishtutorial
