Knowing how to dance, like owning a handkerchief, being good at archery, and resisting the urge to draw mustaches on babies, is a mark of a true gentleman. Witness gentlemanly gyrations with today’s GrouponLive deal to see The Book of Soul, presented by The Thrill Company and featuring Jay Pickens at the Richard Montgomery High School Auditorium in Rockville on Wednesday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. Children ages 8 and younger are admitted for free.

Armed with 15 years of high-profile performing experience and two awards for his tae kwon do prowess, The Thrill Company’s Jay Pickens, riddles stages with performances of classic pop songs, dance steps, acrobatics, and martial-arts moves to raise money for charity. Previously presented in Europe, Las Vegas, and on top of an unsuspecting tour bus, The Book of Soul explores music and moves from several cultures in a family-friendly setting. Pickens, a judge on the British version of So You Think You Can Dance weaves graceful kicks, breakdancing demos, and a tuneful impersonation of Michael Jackson into a dynamic one-hour routine that honors movement’s power to transform the body, mind, and spirit. See a video demonstration of Pickens’ talents here.
Like a party hosted by Superman, the one-man show includes six or seven costume changes and a selection of light refreshments. After the show, Pickens will mingle with guests and sign autographs during an artist meet-and-greet. Audience members can compete throughout the evening for prizes such as fitness classes and dance lessons, and a portion of ticket sales aids charity efforts.
