Dancing with Purpose: The New Florida Follies

MAGIC, MUSIC & MYSTERY! – a Broadway-style extravaganza of song and dance performed by the forever young Follies ensemble!

South Florida Theater Magazine went behind the scenes with The New Florida Follies, “Magic, Music, & Mystery” a show which will be performed all over South Florida for the next few months. We take a peak at their rehearsal process, talk to some of the performers about their history with the group, and learn about the charity work associated with the group.

Audiences will be entertained with wondrous magic, great music, Rockette-style tap dancing, and Follies production numbers with mysterious surprises along the way.

The Follies cast includes former professional dancers such as Radio City Music Hall Rockettes, June Taylor dancers, NFL cheerleaders, Las Vegas and Latin Quarter showgirls, and more!

Also featured in the 2023 show are the dynamic singing talents of Don Stansfield & Carolyn Smylie, and the intriguing illusions of magician Ian Michael.

The New Florida Follies is produced by Emily Adams, and directed and choreographed by former Rockette Cheryl Steinthal. The more than 35 Follies dancers who range in age from 55 to 94 years young, donate their time and talent to help children in need. Each year, the proceeds from ticket sales are donated to local children’s charities in South Florida.

Catch their next two performances March 19th & 26th, 2023 at Countess de Hoernle Theater, Boca Raton, FL. Tickets are $35 each, click here.
