Can you really imagine Supercal - in which the main gimmick is the spelling - being choreographed in a way that does not spell it out? How else would you do it?


Well, I don't think they do the spelling gimmick in the movie, a version that works much better, imo. I think the spelling gimmick is incredibly stupid and tacky.

I agree. I think the stage show ruined it. The film version is much better. And I prefer the idea in the film of 'supercal...' is 'what you say when you don't know what to say' over the show's idea of it meaning what you want it to mean.

Personally, I love the spelling choreography.

We did a huge mary poppins medley in Wavaires (show choir) this year.
We had characters, sets, and costumes.

Of course the end of the medley was supercal. Our choreographer adapted the spelling with bits of his own stuff. It ended up being really awesome! Needless to say, at the end of the fast spelling section the crowd went insane.

The thing is it is not as hard as it looks. Of course we did not do it perfectly like the Broadway cast.:)

I remember that!!!! I was there at DTASC, Our group hung out at lunch time next to your group and I always wondered why you guys were dressed up. You guys were awesome!!!!

As for the YMCA thing added to mary poppins, it is what made me like the show even more and you got tor remember that stuff onstage and stuff onscreen are two major different things.

I've seen Mary Poppins twice on Broadway so far, and I have the program which I could scan, but it honestly won't help. Last time I saw it I also went to a workshop where Brian Letendre (who plays Neleus) taught us the Supercalifragilisicexpialidocious dance, and it's a little bit different than what it has in the program. In the Broadway dance, you don't spell out every letter at the end because it gets so fast, but in the program it has the actual letters because its a picture and not moving. (duh) Besides just learning the letters the transitions are pretty important too, so if you really wanna learn the dance, either take the workshop or study those videos on youtube!


I did the same workshop back in November, the morning after I saw the show. Brain is awesome! The dance is exhausting...but I have to tell you, everyone in my company still remembers every letter.

If you go on the contests on BroadwayWorld, there's a competition where you have to submit a video of you doing it. The dance captain takes you through it step-by-step, so I'm currently trying to learn it (just for fun though as I don't live in the US.

That's pretty clever spamming, but could someone clean it up?
