Holland America Line has transformed its approach to onboard entertainment with the introduction of three touring companies on its Mainstage: Step One Dance Company, featuring works by leading contemporary choreographers; an exclusive license for the international musical phenomenon Postmodern Jukebox to create two unique shows just for Holland America Line; and the latest addition, male vocal group Cantaré.
Holland America Line’s innovative Music Walk is also expanding to three additional ships by spring 2020. Music Walk offers venues with distinct musical genres, including classical and chamber music, chart-topping hits, rhythm and blues and classic rock.
Throughout the year, Step One Dance Company, Postmodern Jukebox and Cantaré will tour select ships in Holland America Line’s fleet.
Postmodern Jukebox — Bringing a Vintage Style Sound to Modern Music
Postmodern Jukebox is known for transforming modern hits into vintage soul, doo-wop and roaring 20s jazz renditions that are as popular as the originals. Holland America Line features its own iteration of this musical collective that rotates among select ships performing two shows that can only be seen on board the premium cruise line. “Bandstand” features modern hits performed as if they were recorded in the 50s & 60s. “Speakeasy” reimagines today’s songs as standards from the 20s & 30s.
Step One Dance Company — A Transcendent Dance Experience
Step One Dance Company brings a multimedia approach to entertainment with performances that merge vivid imagery with contemporary choreography. The Dance Company, comprised of six elite dancers, presents works from notable choreographers who have blended high-caliber dance with technology to create multiple unique shows.
Cantaré — A Quartet of Pop Vocalists
In 2020 Holland America Line offers the return of Cantaré, a male, pop vocal group who perform intricate harmonies. Cantaré will perform two concerts. “I’m Your Man” features songs by some of the most popular male artists of all time, and “Classics” covers timeless songs from every era.
Performances From the Most Authentic Live Music Experiences at Sea
At Music Walk, memorable performances from world-class musicians fill each cruise with an unforgettable rhythm from four distinct genres with Lincoln Center Stage, Billboard Onboard, B.B. King’s Blues Club and Rolling Stone Rock Room. Guests can spend time in one place or enjoy several venues over the course of the night.
