Hype Man

Everyone needs a pick-me up. Mother Ginger will get you every time! Mother Ginger gets the crowd clapping, hooting, and hollering as her little polichinelles dance around the stage.

Who is Mother Ginger? Well here at Ballet Austin, Mother Ginger is a guest, man or woman, from the Austin community. They climb up into the very tall dress in their crazy makeup as the kids all cram under the skirt. The whole skirt costume is wheeled out on the stage as the music starts and Mother Ginger begins.

I say that Mother Ginger is the hype man because every show you will see something new. There is no choreography for the Mother Ginger except dance in a massive skirt. Dabs and a Hook'em Horns sign can go a long way. Mother Ginger is a part you never want to miss.
