Monkey Moves

This page is a resource for Monkey Choreography. I’m going to post video clips of our choreography, and music files, so we can practice at home and in rehearsal, and clips that might be inspirational in developing chory. There are 3 dance numbers in Monkey and the Monk: firstly The Monkeys on Flower and Fruit Mountain (Monkey is born) featuring the younger CYT kids; secondly The Peach Girls (6 students from the older CYT group); and thirdly the Bollywood finale, featuring everyone.
