Inside On Your Toes with Irina Dvorovenko and Joaquin De Luz
November 28, 2001
Fishnets, gangsters, vaudeville and. . . Balanchine? One of these things may not seem like the others, but dancers know it’s a killer combination. The 1936 Broadway musical Rodgers & Hart’s On Your Toes combines all this, plus song-and-dance tap numbers, and it’s currently being reprised at New York City Center May 8-12. At the third vocal and tap rehearsal, Pointe chatted with Irina Dvorovenko and Joaquin De Luz, who star in the show’s famous “Slaughter on Tenth Avenue” ballet. They dished about dancing in heels, capturing the 1930s vibe and making their acting debuts. Watch our exclusive video for an inside interview with these saucy crossover stars.
