Canadian dancers Laurieann Gibson and Nico Archambault were on-screen stars this summer. Gibson, a Toronto native known for her choreography for artists such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Diddy and So You Think You Can Dance Canada’s Luther Brown and Natalli Reznik, headlined a new series on E! called The Dance Scene. The show gave viewers an inside look at the intensity with which Gibson, a former student of The National Ballet of Canada, choreographs in order to create her eye-popping works. Along with the cast’s talent and intensity also comes drama; the show intertwines the complicated personal lives of Gibson and her dancers. Archambault, winner of the first season of SYTYCDC, stars as Marc Painchaud in Charles-Olivier Michaud’s French dance film Sur Le Rythme. Archambault helps Delphine Lamarre (Mylène St-Sauveur) in making a choice between following her dreams of dancing or her parents’ plans for her to attend medical school. Sur Le Rythme was released in theatres August 10th, and has thus far brought in nearly $1 million in ticket sales.
