“SYTYCD” Stars Go Hollywood

What do you do after you win “So You Think You Can Dance” and become super famous?

You go on to star in a dance movie, of course.

Plenty of our favorite “SYTYCD” vets (and former DS cover stars) have taken to the big screen—Kathryn McCormick and tWitch had starring roles in Step Up Revolution, and the dance casts in Step Up 3D, Footloose and Fame were packed with familiar faces.

That's leading lady Witney Carson in the teal dress (love it!) and choreographer Brandon Bryant leading the rehearsal.

Now, three more “SYTYCD” alums, including two former winners, are graduating from the small screens to the silver ones: Russell Ferguson (Season 6 winner), Chehon Wespi-Tschopp (Season 9 winner) and Witney Carson are all set to star in the upcoming East Side Story film, produced by David Winters. Plus, Brandon Bryant (Season 5) choreographed for the movie.

A bit of background: David Winters knows his stuff. He was in the original West Side Story production on Broadway and now he’s making this film to show off an “all-star dance cast.” The plot is based off Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, and it looks like the movie will be part Dirty Dancing, part High School Musical, part West Side Story and part who-cares-these-dancers-are-awesome.

East Side Story!

The film is still in its infant stages and some casting is still being done as scenes are filmed. (We suggest following the film’s Facebook page—casting announcements are posted regularly—and checking out the East Side Story website.)

Here’s a local news clip about the film featuring our December 2012 cover boy, Chehon!
