MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / September 23, 2015 / Fueled by enthusiasm from the nation's key exhibition circuits, Hannover House, Inc. (HHSE) and East Side Story, LLC have made the commitment to expand the screen count and delay the theatrical launch date by two weeks for the youth-appeal dance feature, "Dancin' It's On." The film will now open on Friday, Oct. 30, with a target of 1,000 screens nationwide, and will be the only counter-programming wide release title for that weekend.
"Dancin' It's On" stars dance Superstars Witney Carson (2015 winner on "Dancing With the Stars") and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp (Grand Champion Winner of "So You Think You Can Dance") paired together both romantically and on the dance floor in this energetic, music-filled feature. The award winning film from producer-director David Winters ("West Side Story", "Roller Boogie", "The King Maker") and is expected to appeal to the same sort of highly-responsive movie audiences that made "Step Up" and "High School Musical" into major hits.
The film, which was shot primarily in Panama Beach City, Florida, won three awards earlier this year at the Widescreen Film and Music Video Festival in Miami and features an impressive cast of youth dancers and stars. Other key cast members include Russell Ferguson (Grand Prize Winner of "So You Think You Can Dance?"), Jordan Clark ("The Next Step"), Comfort Fedoke ("Step Up: All In"), Tadd Gadduang ("High School Musical 3") and "Glee" alums Matt Marr and Brandon Bryant. "Dancin' It's On" will be released on October 30, with distributor Hannover House targeting approximately 1,000 screens and playdates in all of the top USA markets.
"We are pleased with the support the film is receiving from major exhibition chains," said Eric Parkinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House. "The opportunity to expand the release and reschedule for a better date was suggested to the company by several of the larger theatre chains, and we accepted. It it our hope that this youth-appeal, PG-rated feature will be welcomed counter-programming to a flood of R-Rated horror titles in the market at that time," he concluded.
The official trailer for the film will debut next week. Additional information and images are available on the website, www.DancinItsOn.com.
SYNOPSIS: This coming of age Dance Film, in the spirit of Dirty Dancing and High School Musical - is about two young lovers from different worlds who find a common bond in their love of dance, and who ultimately work together to win a major dance competition.
