Just When I Thought I Was Over My "Hamilton" Obsession…

June 24, 2017

…This clip, “‘Hamilton’ Choreographer Breaks Down His Moves,” popped up on my YouTube recommended list. I mean, I could watch Hamilton‘s dance wizard Andy Blankenbuehler talk about anything. Have you read our interview with him back when he was making the moves for Bandstand? The guy is freaking fascinating.

In this video for the Wall Street Journal, Blankenbuehler and Hamilton‘s dance captain/associate choreographer Stephanie Klemons break down about 15 seconds of ensemble choreography from the huge production number “Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down).” Dissecting every single gesture and the inspirations behind each movement, Blankenbuehler reveals so clearly why he’s a 3-time winner of the Tony Award for Best Choreography.

So whether you’re a huge choreography nerd (hiiiiiii) or just a Hamilfan looking to reignite the obsession, you’ll love this next 4 minutes of your life:
