TIFF Exclusive: Bust a Move With This Clip From ‘Born To Dance’

“While Hollywood has got the dance formula down cold, New Zealand actor/filmmaker Tammy Davisis bring(s) his own unique flavor to the genre”, writes Edward Davis for Indiewire.

The New Zealand feature film Born To Dance is New Zealand’s first dance movie and stars Tia-Taharoa Maipi as Tu, a young Auckland man, who dreams of being a professional hip-hop dancer.

When he is invited to audition for the K-Crew dance team he believes his dream will come true, but has to face his father, who wants to enlist him in the army.

The movie’s dance scenes have been choreographed by “world champion Parris Goebel and feature(e) some of the best hip hop dancers in the world”.

Stan Walker and Kherington Payne also are starring in the film, which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
