It finally comes out!
And YES, I’m in this movie with Kpop superstar artist BoA, and Dancing With The Stars champ and actor Derek Hough. Same writer/director as Step Up and Save The Last Dance (Duane Adler- he’s awesome, I had a ton of fun working with him.) So if you enjoyed those energizing movies you’ll enjoy this also. =)
We shot Make Your Move (originally titled COBU) years ago, and rehearsed many of the dance scenes at schools across the city- including Toronto’s coolest dance studio Byfield Dance Experience. Heard of it?
This is also the film where I injured my back the FIRST TIME during rehearsals (remember all that acupuncture, massage and physio?) The second time was last year, randomly. But no worries, thanks to our amazing health professionals in Toronto, your boy is totally “back” to 100%.
The film comes out in North America April 18… when it shows in Toronto I’d like to do a big field trip to watch! Leave a comment below and let me know:
1.) If you’d like to have a movie date?
2.) Do you have a favourite scene in a dance movie?
I’ll keep you posted when I know more…

Ok I admit: I’m a dance lover.
Seriously. From the dance floor to dating… who would have thought a sweet dance class can translate into a sweeter Valentine’s Day?
Or ANY day for that matter.
Because you don’t need a special holiday to dance- or to let someone special know that you got moves. In fact, the way you move on the dance floor is a pretty strong indicator of how you move somewhere else…
…so enjoy this throwback newspaper feature in Toronto’s Town Crier. I discuss with reporter Meagan Bowden three basic techniques to help build a strong relationship even AFTER the “day of love” passes.
Can you relate? Or do your hips lie? Share your comments,
