Examples of the Ancestor characters are: Indian, Bride, Groom, Stewardess, Saloon Girl, Flapper, Pilgrim, Conquistador, Caveman, Cavewoman, Soldier, Sailor, etc. So there is definitely something in this show for everyone.
From the ensemble approximately 6 female and 4 male dancers will be picked out to be "featured dancers" and will be used more principally during at least 5 production numbers. Dancers who sing and have a fun, quirky sensibility. Knowledge of tango and flamenco dancing will be a plus.
