Win some Gold Lame Dance Pants

The Pointed Toes team were given the heads up about a humorous competition that MTV is currently running.
MTV is giving people the opportunity to enter the competition called "Revolution of Innovation" where you have to tell them in 25 words or less why you need this amazing 90's inspired pack.

In the pack you get a Boom box, Brick phone and Dance pants.
If you check out the video above you will see the 100% polyester gold lame pants that are part of the pack in action.

These pants could really improve the look of some of those classic 90's dance moves like the Robot and Running man.

3D StreetDance Movie Trailer

Here is a look at the trailer of the 3D Dance movie "Street Dance" that is hitting cinemas this Thursday 27, 2010.

We are looking forward to seeing this 3D Dance flick with the mix of dance crews and Royal ballerinas.

Bring on the 3D glasses and choc tops.

So we went to see CATS

Here are some pics of our Cats visit.
The sets, costumes and choreography was amazing and the director and choreographer Jo-Anne Robinson's revamp of the 1981 show was very well done.
Cats has been seen by over 65 million worldwide since its premiere nearly 30 years ago and I'm sure that amount may even double over the next year with the show heading to tour Asia.
We must admit that the famous songs "Jellicle cats" and "Memories" will be stuck in our heads for the next week.
The show is still running in Sydney until the end of June, so don't miss out.

The Pointed Toes team is catching up with some of their old dancing buddies over the weekend to reminisce about the good old days.
We regularly catch up and this time we are pulling out the old end of year concert videos to have a good laugh.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone and cant wait to see how dancing styles may have changed over the years but our love of dance is still the same.
