FADE IN:

INT. DISCO – NIGHT

From an Extreme close-up on a rotating disco ball we slowly fall back…

And AS BEAT COMES IN start to tilt down on the reflective rays of light shooting down to the dance floor below where we find the 70’s disco crowd flaunting every move imaginable from that decade…

We begin to push over their heads and towards a stage…

Michael slides into frame as it comes to rest and still moving to the beat as he SINGS out to the crowd/camera, a few backup dancers on each side of him.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

There’s a steam beat

and it’s comin’ after you

You can take it

if you only let your feelings through

He leads the crowd into a synchronized clap…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

So DJ spin the sounds

there ain’t no way

that your gonna

let us down

… Then busts out a few solo moves of his own…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Gonna dance

Gonna burn

this disco out

Moving camera over crowd…

LYRICS

Groove all night

keep the boogie alright

Get that sound

everybody just get on down

Camera finds Michael’s ‘hot foot’ and tilts up on him as he is now behind the crowd. They all turn around and move/clap along to his infectious nature…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Gotta hot foot

better freak across the floor

Join the party

and will keep you movin’

that’s for sure

They all fill in around him…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

So DJ spin the sounds

there ain’t no way

that your gonna

sit us down

Gonna dance

till we burn this disco out

… And he leads them into the choreographed dance routine…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Groove all night

keep the boogie alright

Get that sound

everybody just get on down

The crowd parts into two sections, leaving Michael in the center as his backup dancers slide up beside him for some more slick moves…

They then scatter out of frame – (including Michael) as a set of dancers from the crowd perform in the center dance aisle…

Followed by another…

And another. (This time all-girl) The set up for this whole routine is like Soul Train.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Once you get the beat

inside your feet

there ain’t no way to

stop you movin’ good

Now the weekend’s come

it’s time for fun

you got the groove

just like you know you should

People now

are you ready

Won’t you rock across the room

Got a feelin’

that we’re gonna raise

the roof off soon

The disco crowd merges back together, Michael in center foreground standing out…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

So DJ spin the sounds

there ain’t no way

that your gonna

sit us down

Gonna dance

till we burn this disco out

… Then once again leads them into the choreographed routine. (Multi-angle)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Groove all night

keep the boogie alright

Get that sound

everybody just get on down

Groove all night

So DJ spin the sounds

there ain’t no way

that you gonna

sit us down

Gonna dance till we

burn this disco out

Groove all night

keep the boogie alright

Get that sound

everybody just get on down

Michael unleashes some more moves of his own while everyone else sticks to the choreography as camera slowly falls up and over them all to return to…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Gonna dance, gonna shout

gonna burn this disco out

Gonna dance, gonna shout

gonna burn this disco out

Gonna dance, gonna shout

Gonna burn this disco out

(Ad-Lib to fade)
