Post Dancing?
I am thinking of auditioning for Tony in a local production but I am not a very good dancer. Does Tony have much dancing or not?

He has a small amount of dancing with Maria in the Dance at the Gym number, but nothing too strenuous. He also has sme coreoghraphy during the rumbles, but the difficulty and 'danceiness' is up to your director. I apologise for the use of the word danceiness, but I couldn't think of any other way to describe it.

Good luck!

Tony's gotta be a singer first and foremost. His dancing is very minimal. The stuff at the dance is nothing - maybe snapping his fingers, getting wobbly in the knees. Nothin much at all. He doesn't participate in any other dancing number but that.

Of course he does also have the fight choreography, in both "the rumble", and "the ballet".
