FEATURED ON AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, MOTHMEN DANCE TAKE ON RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL
TUESDAY, AUGUST 19TH, 2014
“You’ve got to have moth balls to do that!” – Howie Mandell
Your vote counts tonight America! You can help Mothmen Dance , a high-flying aerial dance team make it through to the semi-finals on America’s Got Talent. This group of talented dancers come from all over the country. Tonight they compete against twelve acts, only five of them will make it through to the next round. The results of America’s votes will air live on Wednesday, August 20th.
Howie Mandell, one of the judges on America’s Got Talent said, “Wow, that looks dangerous, you’ve got to have moth balls to do that,” after watching them audition live. They received a standing ovation from all four judges.
Who are Mothmen Dance? They are an Ariel dance and flying crew created by Jason Whicker and Jennifer Kelly from On the Fly Productions. They are a team of twenty people including rope operators who are responsible for the dancers on stage flying so seamlessly.
Fans meet a few of the dancers and crew at a recent meet and greet fundraiser; Live From the Red Couch, an event held by dh Public Relations and hosted by Dayle Hoffmann at Clasico Cafe in Sarasota, Florida; Jennifer Kelly (Director/Producer), Jason Whicker (Dancer/Choreographer), Bryce Byrd (Dancer), Kristen Noonan (Dancer) and William Booth (Sound/Rope Operator).
The goal was to meet fans before heading to Radio City, get their names out there, and inspire those who have a dream to never give up. You can view a photo gallery of pictures from this event below.
With just over one week, The Mothmen have been in New York City working hard on their act for tonight’s live performance at Radio City Music Hall. A couple of hours ago I spoke to my friend Jennifer Kelly aka ‘Moth Mama’ (named by Mothmen) via phone from New York City. She was having lunch with her family before call time. I asked her how she is feeling before her big debut, “Feels surreal, absolute dream come true. Never thought in a million years I would have this opportunity. It’s been a huge growing and learning experience. I’m excited to see the judges and fans response from all our hard work.” Curious what the process has been like since being in New York, Jennifer tells me, “It’s been intense. Long days, very physically taxing for the guys on the rope. It’s like cramming a week of work in a few days.” According to Jennifer, everyone’s attitudes are awesome, even thought the excitement of tonight’s performance has many of them up all night. Now it’s up to you America! Vote for this all American dance crew and keep them flying high so they can inspire millions of people along the way.
