A town where dance is forbidden
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory, Footloose tells the story of a young rebel who moves to a small, middle-America town where dance is forbidden. He winds up encouraging the local kids to defy the strict edict of local pastor by rallying for a rock ‘n roll party. In so doing, he brings healing to the heart of a town held back by the memory of tragedy.
Anchored by memorable 80s anthems “Holding Out For A Hero”, “Almost Paradise”, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”, and self-titled track, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, and guiding them with warm hearts and open minds.
