Special Features   IN THE STUDIO: Dance Novice Tyler Mount Tries to Learn the Tony-Nominated Choreography From Broadway’s Come From Away
 
Follow along as Tony nominee Kelly Devine teaches him the routine to “Heave Away.”

As part of our In The Studio series, Playbill’s Tyler Mount visited the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre—home to Come From Away—for a choreography tutorial.

“There’s lots of different moments in the show that have movement,” says Tony-nominated choreographer Kelly Devine of her vision for the musical. “A lot of it is an emotional journey with the characters and what they’re going through and when they’re in certain situations, and then there’s the choreography of the whole show which goes from scene to scene to scene.“

Devine creates sweeping movement and the environments of Come From Away—a bus, a plane, a legion—with only chairs and a table. The choreographer decided to teach Playbill a routine from the rowdy celebration scene at the local Gander watering hole. “It’s one of the parts of the show when all of the Come From Aways come to the local bar to get screeched in—a little jig,” she says.

Follow along with Mount, Devine, and dance captain Josh Breckenridge in the video above to learn a snippet of the sea shanty “Heave Away.”
