Reunion Dance – written for the Free Raisins’ Grease Set

I recently had the fabulous experience of working with the Free Raisins at Catapult Showcase, and they are an absolute blast. As a band, they are very deliberate about their pairing of music with dances. They have a set which includes the melody of “Summer Loving” from the musical Grease, and I wrote a dance to go with it.

There’s a video from Catapult of the dance and the set Free Raisins played, and you can hear me prompt it (it fades in during B1): Tell Me More. The sound used is from the house mix, so you unfortunately don’t hear the dancers singing along, just me.
