This week we are going to teach you the Brooklyn Bus Stop, more commonly recognised as the dance from Saturday Night Fever.
For licensing reasons we aren’t using the song Night Fever, but feel free to practice to that song at home if you prefer.
The Dance – Saturday Night Fever
We’ll break the line dance down into bitesize chunks and build up to the full routine, before including the rotating between walls element.
In the movie, the dancers keep repeating the same routine. However they use editing to make sure that the ‘finger point’ always falls on the “Night Fever” chorus. Therefore don’t be surprised, if practicing with the Night Fever music, that you’re not pointing at that point every time.
The song from Saturday Night Fever where they use the Brooklyn Bus Stop is the Bee Gees Night Fever
But for this video we have used Special Delivery by The New Fools

A few years ago we had a cinema night at the studio, showing the film. Before the screenings at our cinema nights we always run a workshop inspired by the film.
In the workshop for Saturday Night Fever we used a modified Brooklyn Bus Stop, as well as taking other dance elements from throughout the film. The routine is taught over a 45 minute workshop and then we sit and watch the film.
For this routine we choreographed it to Stayin’ Alive, rather than Night Fever. If you want to check out the outcome you can see our video below:
