High School Musical Cast - I Don't Dance

March 14, 2013 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

When I get a song stuck in my head it's inevitable that it appears on here, and right now is another example of that.

High School Musical spawned 3 films and a spin off called 'Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure'. They became so popular they managed to release the third movie at cinemas, whereas the first two and the spin-off were television movies. The films also gave us a few very well-known stars, the likes including Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman. Will there be another film? I doubt it, however I wouldn't be surprised to find a reunion movie popping up in a few years maybe? Guess we'll have to wait and see.

"I Don't Dance" was written by Matthew Gerrard, Robbie Nevil and Giancarlo Binando. The song is sung by Lucas Grabeel and Corbin Bleu. It is one of my favourites from the second movie, and I think the whole production behind it was engaging and surprising. A lot clearly went into this.

The video is full of the typical musical dancing and acting. But this manages to make me laugh for a number of reasons, Mainly because you're not actually watching the film, and so in theory you are watching it out of context, and so some parts is much more great to watch. I especially like how Corbin Bleu is singing 'I don't dance' while dancing... Which shows that even the unlikely person can dance if they set their mind to it.

I like how Lucas' character 'Ryan Evans' tries to get Corbin Bleu's character 'Chad Danforth' dancing, proving that if Ryan can do this then Chad can do that.

I like the inclusion of sport, in this case it was baseball. I don't believe there is a music video that features baseball (as far as I'm aware of). The choreography is in total sync, as you would expect from these guys, and the use of the baseball gloves and bats gives you more to look at and not one falls out of place; but if they did, it would've been very obvious.

Overall a very catchy song and definitely one of my favourite scenes from the second movie. The music video (or scene from the movie) is well made, and relates to the song perfectly. The choreography is exceptional, and I have no choice but to give this video the rating it deserves.
