The cast of Family Channel and Temple Street Productions’ hit series The Next Step is going to show the world everything they’re made of, announcing that The Next Step Wild Rhythm Tour, presented by Monster High, will travel to 22 cities across Canada in Winter 2016 followed by international tour dates. In addition to showcasing the amazing talent of The Next Step dancers, the show will also include musical performances by three stars from Family’s upcoming series Lost & Found Music Studios – also produced by Temple Street Productions and created by Frank van Keeken.
The Next Step Wild Rhythm Tour brings never-before-seen dances to the stage, comprised of entirely original choreography and music from the hit series. From alluring duets and solo performances that shine a light on the superior skill level of the dancers to explosive routines that feature the full cast, the interactive show will capture the attention of the entire family. New this year, each show will include exclusive musical performances by Shane Harte and Sarah Carmosino, who star in Family and Temple Street’s new music series Lost & Found Music Studios – set to premiere in early 2016. Also from Lost & Found, DeShaun Clarke will act as host for the stage show, weaving in his musical stylings and hyping up the crowd.
In Canada, fans of the show can visit Family.ca beginning October 28 to vote on which dancers they would like to see perform together on the tour. The results of the online poll will assist in dictating the final lineup for The Next Step Wild Rhythm Tour. Currently, kids can enter the “British Invasion Contest” for the chance to win a trip for four to London, England to see the live show and meet the cast!
