Erica Sobol, the 2013 Capezio A.C.E Award winner, will present runaway! with an all-male version of her company, collidEdance, at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles, May 19–20. Sobol’s $15,000 cash prize helped finance the show, produced by Break the Floor Productions, the Dance Teacher Summit and the Capezio A.C.E. Awards.
Sobol’s cast has a crazy amount of commercial dance credentials: Teddy Tedholm (“So You Think You Can Dance” seasons 6 and 7), Keean Johnson (The Hub’s “Spooksville”), Jose “BoyBoi” Tena (Step Up 3D), Byron Tittle (Fox’s “The X Factor”), Miguel Antonio (Nickelodeon’s “Victorious”), Steven Guero Charles (Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beat” video), Brandon Dumlao (Ariana Grande’s “The Way” video), Jason Gorman (a performer with Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance), Ryan Spencer (a member of Axiom, a dance theater company) and Wyatt Rocker (Twenty One Pilots’ “Holding Onto You” video) are only some of the large (and obviously talented) cast.
Tickets went on sale last week online, but they’ll also be available at the door, pending availability.
Got some choreography of your own you’d like to enter into the 2014 A.C.E Awards competition? Entering is as simple as uploading a video of your best group choreography by May 28. Finalists will get to show their pieces at the Dance Teacher Summit in August, and the winner—like Sobol—will walk away with $15,000 to produce his or her own show.
