What you see here are members of the David Taylor Dance Company performing on the local morning news show of Denver’s NBC affiliate (video below). It’s called the Children’s Rain Forest Oddyssey, and choreographer James Wallace (assuming the company’s website gets it right, Channel 9 misspelled it as Wallis on the telecast) makes sure to explain that these are professional dancers who practice 40 hours a week. To crawl around in a lizard costume. And I thought my job was pointless.
For Colorado residents, you can catch the Rainforest Oddyssey this Sunday at the Lone Tree Rec Center. Bring cash, though: admission is $1.
