Roadhouse cootch dance to a jazzy "What Kind of Man Is This" shows off Kenneth Roberson's limber choreography, though it's unwise to have the choir dance when first singing the number straight: A prim, choir-robed rendition followed by hot high-stepping would better convey a sense of Ray's "Sunday morning and Saturday night" gospel/R&B fusion.
Each Salome dancer carefully drew iconography and other elements from Strauss's opera and Wilde's play; each also employed the techniques and traditions of the pseudo-Oriental cootch dancers.
The act also attempted to distinguish itself from its cootch dance predecessors: Allan and Hoffmann were both known--at least in the press--for their respectability, artistry, and aesthetics, and both were careful to distance themselves and their dances from Eastern, Oriental images even as they enacted them.
