This past weekend, Friday Girl had the pleasure of attending the launch of Pink Kitty Cabaret, a fabulous burlesque and dance show created by Andrea Kelly. Andrea Kelly is a dancer and choreographer who has extensive experience through working with her ex-husband, R&B star R. Kelly with his tours, videos and performances. Her choreography is a theatrical fusion of African, Modern, Jazz, Ballet, Hip-Hop, and Belly Dancing. Elements of her dance show her inspirations of Bob Fosse, Alvin Ailey, Tina Turner, Solid Gold, and street Hip-Hop.
The show was thoroughly enjoyable. Andrea Kelly has assembled a great group of young dancers who will definitely benefit from her wonderful quality of movement and tutelage. We look forward to seeing her dance company, Andrea Kelly Dance Theater grow and flourish.
