We are delighted to present this exclusive clip from “Breaking Legs,” a teen dance competition movie (starring real teens, not actors in their 20’s pretending to be teens). It’s available now on VOD and DVD.
When new-to-town freshman Bloom meets her classmate Harmony, it’s loathing at first sight. Bloom just wants to dance, but the only place to strut her stuff is the school dance team…captained by none other than the number one mean girl herself. When Harmony’s boyfriend falls for Bloom, what starts out as unfriendly competition quickly becomes an all-out war. Bloom’s only shot at her chance to fit into this new school and get on the dance team is to win the Honor Girl top prize. But not even her best friend or her uncle – who is trying to contend with his boss – can help her. And Harmony won’t concede the competition or her boyfriend without a fight!
“Breaking Legs” stars Liv Southard (“Good Enough,” “Horror Haiku”) as Bloom, a high school freshman who has just moved to a small town where the only place to dance is the school’s dance team. Alexa Sutherland (“Sweet/Vicious”) plays the role of Harmony, Bloom’s nemesis, who is willing to go to any length to keep her biggest competitor off the team.
Rounding out the cast is William Leon (“Play by Play”) as Bloom and Harmony’s love interest, Sarah Rochelle (“Offer and Compromise”) as Bloom’s best friend, and Richard Riehle (“Office Space”) as the school’s atypical principle. Mark Marchillo, who also wrote/directed and choreographed the film, stars as Bloom’s aimless uncle. Chris Kattan (“A Night at the Roxbury,” “Saturday Night Live”) and Lee Meriwether (“The League,” “Barnaby Jones”) also star.
Writer/Director and choreographer Mark Marchillo says: “Breaking Legs is a fun, funny and quotable movie that teens and tweens will relate to. We thought it important that the film’s characters ring true, with teenage actors playing their real ages. It’s a kick-up-your-heels kind of entertainment, with a lot of heart for every age. I hope everyone enjoys Breaking Legs as much as we enjoyed making it.”
