How To Tut

November 13th, 2009

The exhibition King Tut: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs (showing at the AGO November 24, 2009-April 18, 2010) makes us want to get up and dance. But not just any dance…we want to Tut! And we want you to join us!

Professional dance artist Mark Cabuena from the Toronto dance crews “Grand Illusion” and “For the Funk of It” has choreographed a special “Tutting” routine that is easy and fun to learn! Watch the video above and practice the moves. You can use your new Tutting skills to impress family and friends… and you can help us set a world record! The AGO will be hosting a special Tutting Day in the New Year, where we invite everyone to perform Mark’s Tut routine with us and help us set a world record.

Stay tuned to the website for more information of this amazing and fun event happening at the AGO! Confirmed information (including registration) regarding the “Tutting” event on Sunday Feb. 28, 2010 will be posted on this website the first week of Jan. In the meantime, keep practicing.

More about the History of Tutting.

    The Toronto Star quoted that the first 100 people to register for the world record will get free entry to the exhibit. I would have registered right now, but I could not see the registration on the website.

    Anyway, I guess that means that I am informally registering me and my son right now. Our names are Randi Glass and Jay Crafton. Our email is rglass@rogers.com. Now we are officially registered and get our free tickets, right?

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry for the delay on the registration information. We had to wait and see if our attempt would be officially recognized by the Guinness World Book of Records….it was! The registration process will require two steps. All of the information will be available at http://www.ago.net/tutting on Jan. 20, 2010.

    Hope everyone is practicing! Remember if you are going to be a part of the record attempt you really need to know the routine! If you don’t know it, we won’t qualify. We’ll be repeating it for 5 minutes so make sure you eat a good breakfast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Due to space restrictions, only those who are participating can be in Bailie court.

    See you on Sunday.
