Video: Josh Drake And Kellen Stancil Release Concept Dance Video In Honor Of International Women's Month

In celebration of International Women's Month, Josh Drake (Aladdin, Dirty Dancing) and Kellen Stancil (Lion King) have created and produced a special Dance Concept video in celebration of all the DIVERSE women in our lives, in our community, and in this world to the song "POWER", by Little Mix featuring Stomzy.

"POWER: A Concept Dance Video" is changing the perspective of male dominant jobs, activities, and lifestyles. This film showcases women as prominent and powerful leaders in very specific scenarios.

"As dancers we possess the talent and skills to make a strong impact by moving our bodies and creating clear perspectives about certain topics. We may not all speak the same language but we can evoke emotion or conversation through dance and visuals," says Drake. "This public holiday and topic means a great deal to us mainly because women are incredibly prominent in our industry of the arts, at all levels. We use our art to empower women to enable their voices and control their own lives, and the future of our world. We want a future where no woman, or girl, is left behind. We dance to achieve a gender equal world of appreciation and support!"

"POWER: A Concept Dance Video" features Heather Makalani (Aladdin), Danielle Gonzalez (Clueless, The Musical), Amanda Braun (Hamilton), Dee Tomasetta (Finding Neverland), Mila Jam (Trans. Recording Artist), Ida Nash, Sarah Gold, Michelle Renaldi, Savannah Cobb, Gina Depool, Marie Rose, Khadija Tariyan (King Kong), Aubree Brown (Ailey II), Christine Sienicki (Radio City Rockette), Myriam Gadri, Eunice Bae, Stacey Sherie (Brooklynette Dancer), Dillon Spicer, Jada Delaney, Jacob Dickey (Aladdin), Donald Jones Jr. (Frozen), Michael Graceffa (The Cher Show), Brandon Rubendall (Spiderman), and Brayden Newby.
