Missy Elliott’s dance moves broke the paradigm when she began releasing music videos for hits like “Gossip Folks,” “Pass the Dutch” and “Work It.” Now the legendary rapper has a new project in the works and tweeted an open call for backup dancers. It’s not clear whether the gig is a music video, tour, or one-off performance…but any of the above are the opportunity of a lifetime.
The auditions will be held in Atlanta this Friday, and applicants are strongly encouraged to “Do your research on Missy!” before daring to show up. Translation: Prepare to put that thing down, flip it and reverse it.
Missy is looking for hip-hop dancers and “tricksters” over age 16 who are quick studies in choreography. The open call takes place at 8:00 p.m. “SHARP” at the Dance 411 studio.
