Now I like to show you a brief combination from all that jazz. Another wonderful Fosse choreography, jazz choreography. Alright, here we go. We're gonna start in a nice deep cliche, leg is turned out. Your in a cliche. 1, 2, 3, 4 you do a slow head roll to the right on 5, 6, 7, 8. Then, you pop your right arm up nice and sharply and pop, pop, good. You hold and 5, 6, 7, 8 and stare the camera down or stare the audience down whichever one or wherever you're at. Let's try that again. Deep cliche 1, 2, 3, 4 and slow 6, 7, 8 and arm, arm and you hold it down. Next part, this is the rouge the knees part. You go down and rub your knee. So that's rouge your knees, come on back up and you do this little finger walk down and unroll your stockings down. Good, let's try that again from the top, awesome. 1, 2, 3, 4 head 5, 6, 7, 8 boom hop, hop. Hold all that jazz then down 2, 3, 4, and 5, 6, 7, 8.

You do a pelvic hip thrust on the next boom, boom in the music. Hop, hop and you hold and all that jazz. Next, very specific your going to turn the car key and then roll the finger up. So that's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Good. Then, you pop your hands out and you do a little shaky shake as the hip roll goes around. And make sure that your really emphasizing those fingers and the hip goes around, a lot of confidence in the upper body. Moving down into the deep cliche, it's just a noisy hall so it's right on your forehead where there's a nightly brawl you pop that arm out and you do a deep lunge to the left. 1 shoulder on that, boom hop and then 3 snaps on the word jazz. And there's all that jazz, let's do that very slow from the beginning again. So this is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. And up, down and all that jazz. Going to rouge my knees and roll my stockings down and hip, hip and all that jazz. Start the car, I know a whoopee spot where the gin is cold but the piano is hot.

The hips circle there, it's just a noisy hall where there's a nightly brawl and all shoulder that shoulder and jazz. 6, and 7, and 8. Good. And really ooze those contraptions and pop that out. I'm gonna do this for you with music, it's not the actual recording but you can get the jest of it. And 5, 6, 7, and cliche. Head roll. Up, up and hold. And down. Hip, hip and hold. Start the car... Shoulder, shoulder and hit. Snap, snap. Alright, there's all that jazz.
