Honey is a classic dance movie that stars Jessica Alba as a struggling choreographer who dreams of making it big. What many people don’t know is that the film features a talented cast of Canadian dancers, including Laurieann Gibson, who served as Alba’s dance double and choreographer. Gibson, a Toronto native, is a renowned choreographer who has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry.

In addition to Laurieann Gibson, Honey also featured the talents of Luther Brown and Shawn Desman, two other prominent Canadian dancers. Brown, a Toronto native, served as a choreographer on the film, and his contributions helped to make the dance scenes truly unforgettable. Desman, also from Toronto, had a cameo appearance in the movie and provided several songs for the soundtrack. All three of these Canadian artists played a vital role in the success of Honey, and their work helped to elevate the film to a whole new level. Thanks to their contributions, Honey became a cult classic and had a significant impact on the Canadian dance industry.

How She Moves

How She Move was a groundbreaking film that showcased the incredible talent of Canadian dancers and their contributions to the world of hip hop dance. Tre Armstrong, a former So You Think You Can Dance Canada judge, was one of the film’s lead actors and dancers, bringing her immense skill and energy to the role of Michelle. The film also featured many top-tier dancers from Do Dat Entertainment, Canada’s first professional Hip Hop dance agency founded by Luther Brown, who worked on the film as a consultant and mentor. The success of How She Move helped to further establish the Canadian dance industry as a major player in the global hip hop scene, inspiring a new generation of dancers to pursue their dreams.

Breakin’ 2

Breakin’ 2 is a cult classic film that had a significant impact on the world of hip hop dance. One of the most memorable scenes from the movie features Ozone, played by Adolfo “Shabba-Doo” Quinones, dancing on the roof of the community centre. This iconic moment captured the essence of hip hop culture, showcasing the incredible skill and creativity of street dancers at the time. The film also featured Turbo, played by Michael “Boogaloo Shrimp” Chambers, who became known for his mind-bending dance moves, including dancing on the ceiling while day dreaming about a budding romance. Breakin’ 2 was a major source of inspiration for Luther Brown, renowned choreographer and founder of Do Dat Entertainment. Luther has cited the film as one of the reasons he fell in love with hip hop dance in the first place. Its influence can still be felt in the hip hop dance community today, cementing its place as a true classic of the genre.
