Wonder How That ORPHAN BLACK Dance Party Came Together? Watch This!

We’re probably not alone in the reeling feeling we’re still holding inside of us after that epic as all get-out season two finale of Orphan Black. The twists! The turns! The entirely new clone scenario! And perhaps most importantly: the clone club dance party.

As we mentioned in our recap of the episode, a lot went on as far as advancing both the storyline and scope of the sestrahood like no other. But perhaps the most impressive, at least from a technical standpoint, was the momentary respite from the craziness that appeared in the form of Cosima (because of course) instigating a wee bit of a dance break with Helena, Sarah, Alison, and sestrabrother Felix (because what dance party would be complete without him, right?).

It was adorable, a little cheesy, and absolutely one of the more silly and delightful moments of an otherwise breakneck, emotionally manipulating, rollercoaster of a finale. And since we nerds love a little behind the scenes action, BBC America has provided us all with a fun look at what it took to get all four of the clones into one single shot and scene (spoiler alert: Tatiana Maslany had to do a hell of a lot of dancing. Fingers crossed she was humming “Dancing With Myself” in her head all the while).

The ending is a particular delight, as the whole cast and crew gathered to dance it out and celebrate a very, very well done second season. Now I hope they realize we’re going to need one of these with the many faces of Tatiana AND Ari Millen next season. (No pressure, guys!)

So, which clone do we think has the best moves? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments.

    Can I Also point out how awesome it was to finally see the Cosima dance?! Tat has been so hush hush about Cosima’s dance in particular… Having admitted that she uses dance to get into each character, respectively, said that Alison, for example is ballet, but would never explain Cosima’s… That was a huge, fantastic moment for those of us wishing, lol. :D

    Helena is a bit off balance there, just like her character, hahah

    Tatiana is such an incredible actress!  How is that she was able to dance as all these with just Fe actually there?  No self-consciousness at all, it seems

      There’s actually three doubles she acts off of. :) Kathryn, the most used double was the prolethaian lady who brought in the bed things for Helena and Gracie when they were put into a room together… They gave her screen time! :)  still, Tat IS spectacular, and the doubles are awesome too! I love this show, so much lol. :)

    Really liked the song, had never heard it before, now I want to find that out so I can play the whole thing.  Since it’s being played on a record player (!) though, I assume it is an old song…is anyone still making vinyl recordings?

    Felix had some great moves with his feet in the background there

  11. tessiewebb says:

    definitely Sarah had the smoothest moves.

  12. Patrick says:

    I keep wondering if there’s some weird union rule where they have to pay Tatiana separately for each role she plays.

    BadHorse (TM) is dancing with Helena…this does not bode well.

    We all know that Helena had the best moves.
