“We wanted to blow up the dancing in a big way,” Soderbergh said empire magazine. “We have this dance number with Channing and Salma [Hayek] right in front. And then the last 30+ minutes of the movie is just a giant dance sequence.”

Despite the dance scene running through much of the finale, the director explained that there’s still a lot of variety within those scenes.

“My job is, how do I differentiate each of these? I can’t shoot them all the same way, I have to come up with a different approach for each dance. And that was really the challenge.” explained Soderbergh. “We stage all the sequences in this fine old theatre, the Clapham Grand… That was fun, there’s not a bad angle to be had on that place…”

“The first movie was a pretty straightforward portrayal of a set of characters living in a particular milieu that hasn’t changed since the beginning. And the second movie kind of pushed through to talk about what women are looking for on a night in which fantasies and sexuality are explored – and how do you maintain a sense of mystery, while still existing in an environment where things like consent and permission are key?” Soderbergh detailed. “The third movie really delves into this in a much bigger way, partly because we’re seeing Mike in a relationship for the first time. So that just sets up a dynamic and a series of discussions that we couldn’t access prior to. Magic Mike’s Last Dance.”
