[Interview] The main cast of Dirty Dancing musical – The Dance and Music

Imagine TV Network chats with the main cast from Dirty Dancing musical about the evergreen tunes and the different genres of dance styles that are featured in the stage adaptation.

Mila De Biaggi, Gareth Bailey, and Bryony Whitfield take on the role of Frances "Baby" Houseman, Johnny Castle and Penny Johnson respectively in the screen-to-stage adaptation of the 1987 film.

With millions of the original soundtrack sold all over the world, the music is featured prominently in the musical and Bailey says there are a number of songs which display a mash-up of different dance styles.

Whitfield shares that each dance in the wildly popular musical is individually choreography so no two couples are dancing the exact same dance on stage.

Biaggi names "The Mumbo," "Do You Love Me" and "Love Men" as her favorite songs to perform despite the challenging dance lifts.

Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage opens at Singapore's Marina Bay Sands from 24 May to 9 June 2013.
