EP 65: Nicholas Foote (autogenerated)

[00:00:00] Dane Reis: [00:00:00] you booked it, episode 65. 

[00:00:05] Alrighty, let’s get started. I am excited to introduce my guest today. Nicholas foot. Are you ready for this Nick?

[00:00:13]Nicholas Foote: [00:00:13] I am ready for this. And I’m excited. 

[00:00:16] Dane Reis: [00:00:16] All right. Nick originally comes from San Diego, California,  where he started dance training at 14 and by 18, he was any professional ballet company after dancing in three different ballet companies. He switched over to jazz and moved to Chicago to dance with the river North dance, Chicago. 

[00:00:36]After taking a job offer for Royal Caribbean cruise lines, he decided to travel the world all while performing in top rated shows on the high seas spending two years in New York dancing off-Broadway led to many opportunities, eventually landing him in Las Vegas. Since coming to Vegas, he has choreographed for melody sweets of absent. 

[00:00:56] Murray Sawchuck Frank Marino, celebrity roast golden rainbows ribbon of life and Broadway bears, Las Vegas. He’s now living life to the fullest in Vegas with his wife and dogs. Nick. That is a quick intro of who you are and what you’ve done, but why don’t you tell us a little bit more about yourself? Fill in the gaps, who you are, and a little bit more about what you do as a professional in the entertainment industry. 

[00:01:25]Nicholas Foote: [00:01:25] Uh, so yeah. , listening to you say what I’ve done. I was like, wow,  you know, you don’t realize sometimes what you’ve done in your career until somebody else is talking to you about it. And you’re like, Oh yeah, I’ve been around for a while. So. That was really nice to hear. Um, but, uh, you know, just, I was a typical. 

[00:01:44]Uh, or however you want to call it, uh, Come from a family of five. So big family, everybody kind of was doing the same thing. And I decided to stop doing sports, which was soccer and swimming. And I decided to dance. And it just took off from there. A couple teachers saw something in me and , they asked. 

[00:02:04]You know, they’re like you should audition for some ballet stuff. And I got accepted to Marine ballet, which is up North of San Francisco. And I finished my ballet training there and out of there, uh, I did auditions. And I got into a ballet school, and, uh, one of my first ballet jobs was. 

[00:02:24]Um, Greensboro ballet, which is in North Carolina, um, coming from the West coast. That was a huge culture shock. Uh, um, and then I got through, through all of that. I decided to switch it up and start practicing jazz and took me to Chicago, which is a beautiful city. I love that city. It’s, it’s so much fun. Um, 

[00:02:43] If any dancers, when things pick back up, if any dancers go to Chicago, I would suggest doing it. The culture there is brilliant. They love the arts and entertainment there. And it was just. Such a great time for me. And like you said, real Caribbean happened. I’ve been to New York advanced in New York, um, all sorts of things, moved to Las Vegas. And then that’s where everything kind of, at that point, my career was at a point where I was like, okay, 

[00:03:11] We need to start looking at the next, next step and the next step. Um, , doing a choreography and directing, and that’s what led me to eventually working with. Uh, like Marie and melody sweets and being part of the golden. 

[00:03:27] as well as contributing to Broadway bears, Las Vegas. 

[00:03:31] Dane Reis: [00:03:31] Fantastic. Well, let’s move on to this next section here. And look, I am a sucker for a good quote. What is your favorite quote? You’d like to share with everyone?

[00:03:43]Nicholas Foote: [00:03:43] My favorite quote is, um, there’s no fate, but what we create.

[00:03:48]And. it is from Terminator two.

[00:03:54] Dane Reis: [00:03:54] Yes.

[00:03:55] Nicholas Foote: [00:03:55] I remember in 1992, maybe. When that movie came out and Sarah Connor said that I was like, It, you know, you, there’s a couple of points in your life where   everybody has a favorite movie, if you will. And. You know, you have a favorite movie when you’re younger and as you get older and sometimes your favorite movie when you’re younger is just a certain point in your life where things just started to click and make super sense. And when she said that, I was like, absolutely, I need to. You know, Um, Fate is  preparation meets opportunity. That’s, that’s what I believe. So if, if  you’re prepared and then the opportunity arises and it just syncs up and a lot of people call that fate and I. Not a big, uh, uh, one of the most controversial things about me is I don’t believe everything happens for a reason. And so. That’s where the no fate, uh, you know, there’s no fate, but what you create, meaning, , a lot of times you create your own faith by being prepared for the opportunities that come to you.

[00:04:54]Dane Reis: [00:04:54] Yeah, I love that outlook. And how have. You applied that quote or how has that quote. Played itself out throughout your career.

[00:05:03]Nicholas Foote: [00:05:03] It’s honestly just being prepared for auditions, but also. Learning. Like when I was studying, I, when I first started dancing, I was my first  year of dance was every style. Like every kid does they do the ballet, the jazz, um, hip hop. Fun fact, I don’t know how to tap. 

[00:05:23] But, but it’s just one of those weird things. I know I took like a class and then that was it. And it just, it never took. And so, but after that first year I did just ballet and I had that whole mentality that, you know, ballet, ballet, ballet. And then after I got into my first company, I was like,  I need to study more. And then I started studying more styles and , there was something in every style that you study that can help you with your main style that you prefer performing.  and I truly believe that because I learned Russian character dancing. And the jumps in Russian character dancing helped me in my ballet, which helped me in my jazz. Um, and then the quick, the, some of the slaps that they do on their boots and stuff helped when I started going into a percussion doing like hand percussions off your body and stuff. So everything you learn, like learning, juggling and clown work and martial arts, those are all things that will help your brain. Uh, pick up choreography and make you a asset in any sort of job that you have.

[00:06:29]Dane Reis: [00:06:29] Yeah, I love that. I love that. And you’re so true that. Who we are and what we can offer and bring to the table really truly is. An accumulation of all of our experiences. And while . There’s a lot to be said about being hyper laser focused on one particular style. If you’re going, depending on what your career is, I should say. It is so valuable to expand beyond that, even if that’s not necessarily your wheelhouse. But to dabble in a few things. Wrap your head about around different things and. Explore and see how those different styles. Are able to be adapted into your art, into what you’re able to bring to the table.

[00:07:09] Nicholas Foote: [00:07:09] Absolutely. Absolutely.

[00:07:11] Dane Reis: [00:07:11] Right on, well, let’s move on to this next section. And of course, Nick, you’re an entertainer. I am an entertainer and I think that you’d agree. That this I can be one of the most subjective, brutally, honest, personally, emotional industries in existence. And you know, as well as I, that in order to create and have a successful career in this industry, like you’re having now. Takes a lot of dedication and hard work. And while yeah, there is an outrageous amount of fun and excitement doing what we do. There are also our fair share of obstacles, challenges, and failures. We are going to experience and we’re going to have to move forward through. So tell us, what is one key challenge, obstacle or failure you’ve experienced in your career? And how did you come out the other side better because of it.

[00:08:02]Nicholas Foote: [00:08:02] probably the biggest misconception. Looking at me as a performer was because I was shorter. I’m five, seven and three fourths. My resume says five, eight. Um,  hey, I know a lot of people that have exaggerated. On resumes. So.

[00:08:20] Dane Reis: [00:08:20] just a quarter inch people and not to.

[00:08:22] Nicholas Foote: [00:08:22] Exactly. I am not five seven I’m five, seven three. But anyways, um, the misconception, when people would see me is that I could not partner and I could not lift. And so when I first switched over from ballet to jazz.  I wasn’t getting work cause people wouldn’t even give me the opportunity to try to partner. Um, to show, to show things. And I had some amazing. Um, ballet partnering teachers and they, they showed me the ropes from day one. And as soon as that first opportunity came, when I got past a certain point in an audition and they let me partner,  that choreographer. . Thankfully for him, he was like, Oh, okay. You only look like you don’t know what you’re doing from, you know, He like, he would look at me and he’d be like, I don’t know if you can lift. And then he gave me a partner and it was like, Oh, you know what you’re doing? Oh, okay. And then from then on out, uh, in Chicago, I was, I was good to go with the partnering and everything else.  that was one of the things is it was just like the huge misconception of  if you are a six foot tall guy with big muscles that doesn’t necessarily mean, you know, how to partner.

[00:09:34]Dane Reis: [00:09:34] No, absolutely not. And I think for any of the guys out there, if you are new or old in this industry, learning how to partner as a dancer. Um, or if, even if you’re not primarily a dancer, but you are needing to dance in some scenes and partner in some scenes. That learning how to do that properly is. Much more rare than people give it credit for, and 

[00:09:58] it helps you to prevent injuries. It also is really helping out the girls because you’re not hurting them by accident with your hands and your fingers and bruising them

[00:10:07] and things like this. Cause that’s, that’s going to happen. And it is such a very refined skill to know how to partner. Properly and like you, I was very fortunate to have some fantastic teachers growing up that really properly knew how to partner. Comfortably and safely, and it’s been such a blessing to have throughout my entire career.

[00:10:31]Nicholas Foote: [00:10:31] Yeah, because especially once you’re in a cast and you, and you’ve probably experienced this the very first time when somebody’s like, Oh, okay, you’re my partner. And then when you start dancing together, they’re like, Nope. Uh, the next number, I want to be partnered with him again, because I like what he does. We are, we’re in sync. When we partner, nobody’s gonna get hurt. When I like either one of us are gonna get hurt dancing together. So that’s, and that’s always, that was always a big ego boost for me is when I get partnered with somebody and they’d be like, I want to dance with them. The whole show. They’re like, Oh, okay. Sounds good to me.

[00:11:05] Dane Reis: [00:11:05] Sounds good. Great. I love it. Well, let’s move on to this section and to a time that I like to call your spotlight moment. That one moment in time you realized, yes, I am going to be an entertainer for a living or maybe it was, yes, this is what I need to be doing as an entertainer. Tell us about that.

[00:11:30]Nicholas Foote: [00:11:30] I, you know, funny enough that moment for me was  a few years into my dancing career. Um, , I love my ballet base. I always credit my ballet base for the longevity of my career of keeping knees in line angles and line, all that good stuff. Um, and then when I moved to New York, there was an audition that I had where I was like, I finally found my niche of it. Wasn’t ballet. Wasn’t my niche , pure jazz. Wasn’t my niche. Um, it was for, uh, A show in Atlantic city called nights on Broadway. And choreographer was gentleman by the name of ACC ULA. And this is literally, it was like a movie. Your typical movie. Uh, introduction to the character. I woke up late. I grabbed my dance bag. When I got to the audition, I was in normal clothes. They didn’t think I was there. Like, are you in the right place? I was like, yes, I’m here for the audition. They’re like, Oh, sorry. We didn’t realize you were a dancer. I was like, Oh, awesome. I look in my dance bag and I had the wrong gap clothes.

[00:12:35] So I had, I had like, You know, in that time, everything we were supposed to be in  jazz pants and a tank top. And I had my workout pants. I had like rip away sweats that were two sizes too big. And I had an extra large shirt. And I was like, are you kidding me? I was like, this is what I’m going to have to audition in. And I didn’t have dance shoes. So I just had my sneakers and I was like, Oh Lord. All right.  well, I’m here. And I did the audition and they liked me. They kept me, they had me partner, which was another one of those moments where the assistant choreographer was like, Oh, you know how to partner? And I was like, I’m here for you. And they’re like, come back, you get a call back for the next day. And as I would think them, I was like, thank you so much. I will come looking like an answer tomorrow. And they laughed because they were like, Oh, okay. And then next day I showed up in. Proper jazz pants. And a shirt and had my dance shoes and I was ready to go. And they were like, ah, now we see what you mean. And at the end, And at the end of that audition. It was like, this is my style.  This is where I felt most at home doing a musical theater style and,  telling those types of stories on stage. And that’s when I was like, Okay. I need to keep,  doing this. I need to keep pushing. Towards this. This route.

[00:14:05]Dane Reis: [00:14:05] Yeah, absolutely. And I love that you said that  you found your niche , in that  Broadway style, because I’m sure that you can relate to this where. You’ll be talking to people, the Mughals of the world that are not in our, in our industry. And they’re like, well, what do you do? You’re like, why I’m a dancer? And like, Oh, what kind of dance do you do? Oh, gosh. How do I answer that question? 

[00:14:25] Uh, uh, 

[00:14:25] Everything. Uh, I don’t know, because that’s really what the,  Broadway style is. I think that’s probably the best way to wrap it up is that it’s, it’s built on a foundation of ballet, but a mixture of everything, but it’s storytelling and that’s the exciting part.

[00:14:40] Nicholas Foote: [00:14:40] Absolutely. Absolutely. And we’re very fortunate nowadays where we see. Uh, seeing more of musical theater style, we see more dance on television just in general. So that’s, that’s nice. And so it’s easier for people to wrap their heads around the fact that, Oh, no, I’m a professional dancer.  

[00:14:59] Dane Reis: [00:14:59] And let’s piggyback on that question. What is your number one? Booked it moment. Walk us through that day, the auditions and call backs. If they happen to be a part of it, what was going on in your life? And what about that moment? Makes it your favorite? Booked it moment.

[00:15:18]Nicholas Foote: [00:15:18] that booked it moment would be it’s almost the same day. It really is that same day of, uh, well, , let’s focus on the second day. More in, you know, like I had the proper dance where I had the proper, the. Everything about the second day was completely opposite of the first day. , I woke up on the right time. I , woke up on the right side of the bed. . My morning routine was just set. You know, I had, this is what I did. Uh, I hopped on the N train if you’re from New York, you know what I’m talking about? I lived in a story at Queens. And this is what, uh, went to. I believe it was Pam Greer. Um, And, you know, went up and I was. You know, when it really does have something to say, when, if you’re in the proper mindset. How much better your audition will go.

[00:16:10] And, and just the mindset was there and , the first day we learned. . Uh, , the Broadway version of Footloose, which is insanely difficult. Um, it is one of the most athletic shows I’ve ever done. And they made it that much more fun by putting us in cowboy boots. That. So, and then the second day we did, um, all that jazz. So we, we bridged that Fasi gap and we also did, uh, hairspray.  it was one of those things where the dominoes were just falling in my direction. . The choreography I had, the styles were just happening. I didn’t have to think very hard. The choreography was super fun. I was just having a great time. Auditioning and being there with my fellow dancers and this was all within God. I made the move to New York, like six months beforehand. So my group of friends was not that big. Four. Uh, for New York and , The comradery that I had at that audition was just. I wasn’t used to that because the ballet world is very cutthroat. And. It was, I, you know, even in, in, in Chicago, I didn’t audition very much because I was with river North. And then with the choreographer I was working with there, we were our own little group. So we had such a small group. Um, but in New York it was the first time that I was really  on my own. With not a lot of friends that I known beforehand, and it was very much. Like I said the audition process. It was very, uh, comradery. Just everybody was having a great time. And by the time we got down to the, like the last 12. And they were only keeping six. Everybody was just having a ball. Um, it was just one of those just great, great moments. And by the end of it, I was like, I don’t know what’s going to happen. But this has been just the audition of all auditions for me.  I was having a ball. I was having a blast. And just live in my life as a performer.


[00:18:14]Dane Reis: [00:18:14] Perfect. And did you book it in the room or did you leave the room and they give you a call like a week later? How did it go?

[00:18:21] Nicholas Foote: [00:18:21] They gave me a call the next day. So that was. That was really nice to end. I mean, and you know, sometimes they’re like, Hey, we’ll call you whether they get it, whether you get it or not, and then you don’t receive a call. So you’re. And you’re like six weeks down the line. You’re like, I don’t know. Maybe I still got it.

[00:18:40] Exactly. And your friends are like, no, you’re, uh, it’s been six weeks. So. Exactly. You’re like, ah, they did their opening night last night. Oh, okay. But, um, No, like I got called the next day and . When I got that call, I was just like, yes. And, um, Luckily for me. I had lived in Chicago and I experience like being from the West coast. Don’t experience winter like you do. If you’re from the East coast. And. I mean, you know what I’m talking about there. And so when. Our rehearsals started like December. We w we rehearsed the week before Christmas. And we were cursed the week after Christmas and our opening night was, um, January 4th. So we went to location. Um, New year’s day. So after new year’s Eve partying, we all got on a bus, went to the theater and installed the show. So , it was the first time that I had been  in that rehearsal process. And. New York where, you know, you’re sweating your ass off in the studio and then you go outside and you’re like, Oh my God. What is happening with the world?

[00:19:45] Dane Reis: [00:19:45] Yeah. Absolutely. And I love when you were talking about that call back on that second day, how you said there’s such comradery. We were having so much fun and that’s what I love. About dance auditions as opposed to acting auditions or singing auditions, is that when you get deep into a dancing audition, It really is a lot of fun. And, you know, and you really get into that really vibey flow state with everyone. And. Of course, we’re all going for the same job, but. when you get to that point, you’re happy for everyone. And you’re happy for that experience. And I love that feeling and I love those moments. 

[00:20:26]In, in my career.

[00:20:28]Nicholas Foote: [00:20:28] Yeah. And, and it’s you end up having, you have moments of people  . Like, so you have one group going and the judges and the judges, sorry, watching too much. That competition dance shows. And you have the casting director and they’re all watching that one group. And then that one person. Gets way out of light on it. And it seems like they’re going to go into the. The next group waiting on the side and you just kind of catch them and push them back into the center of the room going. No, no, no. Keep going, keep going. Don’t stop. And cause everybody’s written for each other and, .  like you said, Between differences between singing and acting and all those things is like the dancers are rooting for each other and, and all those things. And somebody pulls off a cool move or a cool timing, or like, Ooh, 


[00:21:13] Dane Reis: [00:21:13] absolutely. Absolutely. Well, let’s take a moment to talk about the present. What projects are you working on now? What are you looking forward to? And, Hey, it’s a weird time. We are amidst this global pandemic. How do you see the entertainment industry moving forward in the next couple of years?

[00:21:31]Nicholas Foote: [00:21:31] so the projects that were put on hold. That I’m hoping come back and come back strong. Um, so here in Vegas, we have a thing called super summer theater. And it’s an outdoor theater that happens, uh, near red rock Canyon. And they put on Broadway shows. And so I was slated to be the choreographer for sister act that was going to be this summer. And. Luckily, right when this started, the superstar in the theater was trying to figure out how they were going to go forward with the shows and everything like that. And luckily. We had not even done auditions or casting for sister act. So we jumped that gun. We were like, okay, awesome. This is what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna, we’re gonna push it a year. And that’s what happened. So those that projects. Uh, go for next year, if everything glides back to normality. Um, also one of my, uh, one of my. Projects, not projects, but one of the organizations I worked for here in Las Vegas is a golden rainbow ribbon of life. Here, which is a organization that helps with. HIV AIDS. And they have properties here in Las Vegas. So families that are  living with HIV and AIDS have a place to go. They have housing too. To go and they can not worry about their housing. Uh, golden rainbow helps with medicine and they. One of the, instead of giving them a handout, they’re giving them a hand up. Is one of the lines that we like to use with golden rainbow. And so every year there’s, there’s a big performance that happens every year and  because of what was going on that got pushed away. And so we’re hoping because next year is 35 years of golden rainbow. And so we’re hoping to make it a really big one.

[00:23:28] Dane Reis: [00:23:28] Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. I, I performed in one, I think it was only one, maybe two golden rainbows and you’re right. It is such a fantastic. Cause, and for the community. Love it. And it’s so great that you were part of that.

[00:23:43]Nicholas Foote: [00:23:43] Yeah.  being in New York. I was fortunate to. Witness Broadway bears in New York. And, and I’m of that age where the AIDS epidemic hit hard because it was.  They’re like there was a whole generation lost to the disease. And so . Being a part of and witnessing different cities, do different things for the HIV benefits and stuff like that. I always felt like it was something that . It was a no brainer to be like, okay, well, what can I do? Well, entertainers don’t make a lot of money. Well, guess what? I can offer my talents and skills to these organizations because. I want to contribute. I want to help. I want to spread the word . So it was always such a, no matter what city I lived in, I always tried to find a way to contribute and I was fortunate enough. To be a part of golden Rambo for. Forever. Almost ever since I moved to town. I’ve been a part of golden rainbow in the past three years, this would have been fourth year, but the past three years I’ve been one of the directors of the show as well.   

[00:24:43] Dane Reis: [00:24:43] Oh, that’s brilliant. And it’s time to move on to one of my favorite sections in the interview. I call it the grease lightening round. I am going to ask you a handful of questions. I want you to answer them as quickly and concisely as possible one after another. Are you ready?

[00:25:05] All right. First question. What was the one thing holding you back from committing to a career as an entertainer? 

[00:25:12] Nicholas Foote: [00:25:12] My height.

[00:25:13] Dane Reis: [00:25:13] Second question. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

[00:25:19]Nicholas Foote: [00:25:19] If you get knocked down, get back up again.

[00:25:21] Dane Reis: [00:25:21] Third question. What is something that is working for you right now? Or if you’d like to go pre COVID, what was working for you before our industry went on? Pause.

[00:25:32]Nicholas Foote: [00:25:32] I would definitely have to say my sense of humor and  my likability, which is an odd thing to say, but.

[00:25:37]Dane Reis: [00:25:37] Absolutely. Own it. And the fourth question. What is your best resource? Whether that is a book, a movie, a YouTube video, a podcast, maybe a piece of technology 

[00:25:54] Nicholas Foote: [00:25:54] Um, I would definitely have to say it would be YouTube and the old MGM classic movies, like with gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, you can always find tidbits of inspiration from watching those. Old folks, how they. How they did it with there. 

[00:26:11]dancing and singing a staging and everything like that. There’s always a tidbit. You can, 

[00:26:15] you can get inspiration from. 

[00:26:16] Dane Reis: [00:26:16] Yeah, I love it. And I loved those old MGM movies and. How long, some of those scenes are those single cuts of

[00:26:26], 15 minute dance number. You’re like, Oh my goodness. Perfect as well. It’s 

[00:26:33] Nicholas Foote: [00:26:33] Barn raisings barn raising scene seven brides for seven brothers. Just your. Just like our. That was, I believe that was the last one done where they had multiple cameras and they just shot it from top to bottom with multiple cameras, but it was just one take.

[00:26:47]Dane Reis: [00:26:47] It is stunning. It’s amazing. If you have not seen any of that, everyone go to YouTube right now. Check it out.  your mind will be blown. And the fifth question, if you had to start your career from scratch, but you still had all the knowledge and experience you’ve collected from your career in this industry, what would you do or not do? Would you do anything differently or would you keep it the same?

[00:27:10]Nicholas Foote: [00:27:10] I think I would honestly move to New York right away at like out of high school, out of the bat with all the knowledge and that I have now. I would forego. eh, Maybe hit Chicago first, but definitely I would definitely move into. Uh, , I, and I know people always say, this is that you can’t erase what you’ve done because that you become who you are from your experiences. But. Just forgoing those. Years of, uh,  ballet companies, where it was just not. I was trying to put a square peg in a round hole. It just, it wasn’t fitting. Uh, , I would just go into the jazz route right away and be like, okay, this is, this is definitely where I’m feeling it.

[00:27:54] Dane Reis: [00:27:54] Yeah, right on. And you’re right. , of course. , all of our experiences lead to and create who we are in any particular moment. But I love that question because it is the conundrum of that question and it lives in a fantasy world. Right. So 

[00:28:06] I love that. I love that answer. And the last question. What is the golden nugget knowledge drop you’ve learned from your successful career in this industry? You’d like to leave with our listeners.

[00:28:19]Nicholas Foote: [00:28:19] Um, for any of the, any of the young dancers, , what I always tell kids, when I do masterclasses, you are a successful dancer. When you support yourself with your career. ,  it doesn’t mean you’re not successful. If you don’t have a million followers or a million likes from a video , if you were supporting yourself by being a theme park dancer, guess what? You are a success as an, as a dancer and an entertainer. Uh, cruise ships. Eh, you know, whatever, if you are supporting yourself and your family on your. 

[00:28:51] dancing career, you are a success. Uh, being a successful one does not mean you are the winner of those dance reality shows or. Uh, something like that you are successful. Entertainer, if you are supporting herself. And I think a lot of people forget that when they’re going through the audition process.
