Mick Jagger & Melanie Hamrick Open Up About Working Together on ‘Porte Route’
During a February 2019 interview with Town and Country Magazine, Mick Jagger and Melanie Hamrick opened up about working on Porte Route together. “Melanie had the idea to do the ballet and she’s choreographing it. She chose the songs to be honest.”
Jagger also shared that he and Hamrick discussed a few alternatives to the songs, but she ended up choosing them. Part of my job is to make sure that they all run together smoothly. Do the links, and the edits so they work together.”
Jagger goes on to note that the songs do flow nicely and the high and lows go together. “The keys work going from one song to the next – that sort of thing.”
The rock legend explained that they added bits of sound effects for the ballet. “But I mean, it’s all music that’s already quite well-known songs.”
While chatting about their son, Mick Jagger was asked if Deveraux takes after him or Hamrick when it comes to dance moves. “It’s too early to say.”
Hamrick also spoke about why it is important for her to support the charity Youth America Grand Prix. “That’s how I started. I did their competition the first year it opened when I was twelve. So it’s kind of like full circle. Twenty years later, I’m coming in to choreograph. And they’re helping me find new things to do in the ballet world.”
Hamrick goes on to add that she is choreographing some of the Youth American Grand Prix as well. “So, it’s quite fun.”
