Rich Man’s Frug: The Aloof (Contest Winner!)

The above video wins the contest, if not simply because I would never find something like this myself: some wicked hot dancing from the 1969 musical Sweet Charity, directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse. The featured scene is the first “movement” to a three-part dance number called “The Rich Man’s Frug”.

The Frug (“froog“) is a popular dance from the 60’s that evolved from The Chicken, which itself was mostly used in combination with The Twist.

This was submitted by Andrew Eglinton, a playwright pursuing an MA in writing for performance at Goldsmiths College at the University of London. He blogs about theater and writing at Desperate Curiosity, a recent addition to the 9rules network. Andrew also sent me two more links, both of which I’ve already seen but are no less excellent.

  1. Now I must say, that is a pretty awesome video!

    Pretty funny actually as I was watching the E! True Hollywood Story of Liza Minelli on Monday and it had some other clips from the same musical.

    Wait..did I just admit watching E! Uh-oh 😛
