“Summer Dance” is directed by Australian filmmaker, Kyle Portbury, and it tells a story of a teenage boy who is sent to work summer camp after his mother finds out he got a D in school. When the boy gets to the camp, he finds himself falling for an incredibly talented dancer named Jasmine, played by Nia Sioux, who dreams of becoming a principal dancer at the world-renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. His mother, a former ballerina, gave up her dreams of dancing to raise a family and her past becomes relevant when she discovers her son’s love for Jasmine and will stop at nothing to break them apart.
The film, from a script by Venu journalist Peter J. Fox, is being produced by Charles Randolph of Charles Randolph Productions and Alexia Melocchi of Little Studio Films. Dance is one of the central focuses of the film, so it was important that the best of the best in the dancing sphere were involved in this project. Randolph Productions and Little Studio Films enlisted experienced choreographer, Kitty McNamee, of “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” for the dancing portions of the film to bring the characters to life. McNamee is currently choreographing “Firebird” for the LA Philharmonic.
