If you chose mostly B’s, you are the American favorite, “Dirty Dancing.” You are dynamic and fabulous, and nobody can put you in the corner. It may have taken some time, but you finally learned how to dance to your own rhythm—and no one else’s. You can watch Baby’s story come to life on the Eisenhower stage March 21 and 22, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.
If you chose mostly C’s, you are “Jersey Boys.” You’re upbeat and entertaining, and your friend group is always the life of the party.
