The day I found out Jeremy Hudson and Mark Kanemura were dating, I sprinted across the office and practically shouted to the rest of the Dance Spirit staff, “We have to put them on the cover!” You know Mark from Season 4 of “So You Think You Can Dance,” and from his work on Season 10. (The couch piece he did for Jenna Johnson was my favorite of the entire season.) You know Jeremy from…well, everyone knows Jeremy. Commercial dance insiders regularly refer to him as “the most-booked dancer in L.A.,” and during our cover shoot last September, Jeremy confessed to me that he hasn’t had to audition for a job in years—people just hire him.
Jeremy and Mark have each found incredible successes in their dance careers so far, but put them on a stage together and they light it up. Case in point: just about every Lady Gaga video or tour you’ve ever seen. (And take a look at this album of outtakes from their shoot. There wasn’t a less-than-perfect picture in the entire bunch!)
It’s such an honor having these two oh-so-in-love superstars on the cover of our May/June issue. We’re in love with their love story. Click here to read it, and enjoy this video from their photo shoot with photographer Joe Toreno in Hollywood.
Of course, Mark and Jeremy aren’t the only crazy-hot pair making their mark on the Hollywood dance scene. Dancing power duos are all the rage right now. Once you’re done reading about Mark and Jeremy’s journey to coupledom, enjoy the sweet stories of Jaimie Goodwin and Bryan Tanaka, Chantel Aguirre and Michael Keefe, Keone and Mari Madrid, Randi Kemper and Hefa Tuita and, of course, our September 2012 cover stars (and newlyweds!), Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker.
Prepare to be awwwww-ed by all of it. We certainly were.
