After making their tribute to the late “King of Pop” Michael Jackson following his death last year, inmates at a Cebu penitentiary got to meet – and learn from – the superstar’s choreographer, who is supposedly planning a “big number” with them.
Radio dzBB’s Cebu affiliate reported on Tuesday that Travis Payne was in the city for a two-day visit.
The report also cited Byron Garcia, Cebu capitol consultant on security matters, as saying that Payne is planning a “big production number” with the inmates.
However, Garcia did not elaborate on the matter.
DzBB’s report also said that the dancing inmates of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center learned “The Drill” from Payne for two days.
“The Drill” was the last choreography Payne and Jackson collaborated on before Jackson died in June 2009.
Shortly after Jackson died, the inmates performed a tribute dance number based on Jackson’s hit “Thriller.” The video of the dance was uploaded to video sharing site YouTube.
The inmates gained fame for their choreographed dances of many hit songs. Videos of their dances are uploaded to YouTube.
