Define "dancing," the captain asks his computer in Wall-E, which I went to see for the 2nd time last night, with L & M. (It's now at the $3 theaters). I love that the filmmakers see dancing as one of the things that defines us as human.
I've been thinking about dance lately because my movie Fly wants to be a tap dancer.
Margo, a dance friend, told me Gene Kelley and his type are called "dog dancers," while Fred Astaire is a "cat dancer." I love them both.
And Cyd Charisse.
Cat or dog?
Cyd Charisse dances hot with Kelly, in Singin' in the Rain.
..and cool with Astaire, in The Band Wagon.
