MAKE YOUR MOVE: Newest Dance Movie Features Toronto Dance Talent

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…

Don’t Miss Turn The Beat Around On TV!

I’m dancing and acting in this upcoming MTV film, “Turn The Beat Around.” Watch the trailer…

Hope you didn’t blink, or you missed me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s a story about a lovely young dancer struggling for the opportunity to live her dream of starting a disco club.

Directed by Bradley Walsh, this film features Toronto talent galore! Including a few cool cats from So You Think You Can Dance Canada’s first season. We had a blast working together last summer.

Watch us in action February 26th. Stay tuned to CTV and MTV for exact times in your area.
