Rachele Brooke-Smith Stars in New Gymnastics Feature Film CHALK IT UP
Triple threat actress, singer and dancer Rachele Brooke-Smith springs into full-bodied action as Angelina in the upcoming gymnastics-themed feature, Chalk It Up, the "unofficial sequel" to Disney's 2006 film, Stick It! Chalk It Up is in production and slated for release in 2015.
"Dancing has always been a PASSION of mine. I grew up a competitive gymnast so starring in a movie about gymnastics just made sense," says Rachele. "It was an exciting challenge for me and I feel very blessed to have worked alongside such talented actors and gymnasts."
A former gymnast, Rachele Brooke-Smith delivers an Olympic-level performance in the coming-of-age comedy, where a girly-girl builds a college gymnastics team in order to win back her ex-boyfriend. Under the careful direction of Hisonni Johnson, Rachele stars alongside Maddy Curley, Nikki SooHoo, John DeLuca, Nicholas Gonzalez and Julie Warner.
After her big-screen debut in 2008's Center Stage: Turn It Up, Rachele continued to dance her way into notable roles in popular films such as Bring It On: Fight to the Finish (opposite Christina Milian) as well as 17 Again, Iron Man 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel and Burlesque.
Rachele's PASSION for spreading love and light to all corners of the glove serves her role as captain of the non-profit "Unbreakable Dreams," a motivational tour where she teaches kids and teens how to stay healthy, live happy and find the personal power to make their dreams a reality through dance, fitness and motivational speaking. The "Unbreakable" brand promotes health and wellness by connecting and challenging people each day mentally, physically and spiritually to discover and unleash your most powerful self.
In her latest viral sensation, promoting the "DUDE. be nice" campaign for bullying awareness and prevention, Rachele poses 25 stories above New York's iconic city skyline in a death-defying yoga stance! The video has accumulated nearly 500,000 views and generated a tidal wave of international media attention.
