After premiering in London’s West End in 2005, Billy Elliot the Musical made its Broadway debut in November 2008. The show, based on the 2000 movie Billy Elliot, tells the story of a motherless boy who wants to dance ballet and keeps it a secret from his father, who is dead set against Billy as a ballet dancer.
Here is the amazing Trent Kowalik as Billy in “Angry Dance” at the 2009 Tony Awards (introduced by Sir Elton John, who wrote the music to the show):
BONUS! So there was the ‘angry dance.’ How about some happy dancing? Here’s Hugh Jackman as Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz, having a great time with “I Go to Rio.” Enjoy!
