I’ll be honest, I didn’t quite expect the extent of the excitement in response to our exclusive clip from “Born To Dance,” the New Zealand dance movie that’s making its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. It seems there is some buzz brewing around the film, and here’s another opportunity to check it out with the new trailer that just landed.
Much of the chatter with the picture has to do with world-renowned choreographer Parris Goebel, who has worked with Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, and Cirque Du Soleil, among others, and put together all the hot moves on display in this film directed by Tammy Davis. The filmmaker enlists Tia-Taharoa Maipi, Stan Walker, and Kherington Payne to tell the story of Maori teen at a crossroads in his life. He decides to risk it all and pursue a career in dance, and faces resistance from his father, while also embarking on a new romance.
“Born To Dance” hits TIFF in just a couple of short weeks. Watch below.
