Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com APRIL 8,2005 15 theater johnny hooks Former Houstonian and gay dancer Sean Kelly is back with the moves of Twyla Tharp and the music of Billy Joel Swingin' to Billy Joel MANY PERFORMERS IN MUSICAL theater are required to learn one or two parts at best. However gay dancer and former Houstonian Sean Kelly must learn all the male parts as the dance captain/swing on the first national tour of the Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp Broadway musical 'Movin'Out'. "It's funny, we have what we call 'swing moments' in rehearsal, where suddenly you find yourself on the wrong side of the stage, going into a different role than what you're rehearsing," he-says. Sean Kelly was born in San Raphael, in Marin County, California. There he trained at the Marin Ballet, under the direction of Maria Vegh. Though he refuses to give his age, 'Are you kidding?" he laughs, he will admit to being in his late 30's. Isn't that a bit old to be performing in a show that is nearly all dance? "Well, if I was still in performing classical ballet, then I would say yes," he says. "But this show is contemporary in every way" Sean Kelly lived in Houston from 1985 through 2000. "It was nice to have a steady paycheck, and I loved living in Houston," he recalls. "The city really supports its arts community, and that is so refreshing." Kelly was a member of the Houston Ballet and danced here for many seasons as a Principal Dancer, eventually becoming Ballet Master. He danced all of the company's full-length classics and many contemporary works by such choreographers as Ben Stevenson, George Balanchine, Glen Tetley, Christopher Bruce, Paul Taylor, Jiri Kylian and Stanton Welch, among others. Kelly has been on the road for many years now. He is single and doesn't even have time for a pet. "I am just never home." Previously he toured the US and Japan as Dance Supervisor with the musical 'Swing' and has been a guest artist with a variety of companies throughout the U.S. as well as abroad. Recently he staged Ben Stevenson's 'Cleopatra' for both the Boston Ballet and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Kelly is also a choreographer having created numerous works with the ft MORE INFO 'Movin' Out1 April 12-24 Broadway in Houston Hobby Center 800 Bagby 713-629-3700 www.BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com Former Houstonian Sean Kelly is the dance captain/swing for the first national tour of 'Movin' Out.' (Photo by Joan Marcus) Houston Ballet as well as Diablo Ballet, Lexington Ballet and Ballet Spartanburg. He has been invited to teach at the Houston Ballet Academy, the Beijing Dance Academy, the High School for Performing and Visual Artists and Tulsa Ballet Theatre's summer program. Not happy to rest on his laurels, Kelly has participated in three international ballet competitions and was a member of the original Broadway cast of "Movin' Out,' which won Tony awards in 2003 for Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. THE SHOW'S STORY FOLLOWS FIVE friends from their 1960's high school graduation to their reunion some years later. In between, everyone finds or loses love, the men go to Vietnam (where one perishes on the battlefield), and everyone must readjust to life after the war. With no traditional dialogue, the story is told through more than two dozen or so well-known Joel songs like "New York State of Mind," "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," "Angry Young Men," and "Uptown Girl," among others. Tharp's delicious choreography tells the rest of the story. Anexhilarating band is led by Darren Holden, who sings lead and plays piano. Asked what he misses most about" Houston, he says, "The people and my friends. Even though the early '80s were a tough time in Houston, I really liked it." The last time Kelly was in town was a sad occasion, the funeral of his friend and local ballet star Mark Arvin. This time, in addition to chowing down on Texas barbeque, he says, "I also can't wait to go to JR's and the Brazos River Bottom! There is nothing like line dancing with a cute cowboy" RE-BUILD YOUR CREDIT with easy payment arrangements upon approval. • LOW INCOME • BANKRUPTCY • RE-FINANCING • DEBT CONSOLIDATION Gzll 1.866.837.3840 **4Full Spectrum Lending A COUNTRYWIDE HOME LOANS DIVISION Michael Morrow on: "The Minister Mik Show J before his in 1998.
