"Dancing In The Street" - Wie Motown das Tanzen lernte

Ein Abend über den Choreographen Cholly Atkins, der 1964 von Berry Gordy verpflichtet wurde, um Vokalgruppen, die bei Motown unter Vertrag standen, zu helfen, u.a. den "Graystone" Tanz erfand und 1989 einen Tony Award für seine Arbeit für das Broadway Musical "Black And Blue" erhielt.
