An hour TV drama that centers around rising stars in the new freshman class of the highly competitive, sometimes cutthroat New Orleans College Bachelor of Fine Arts program.  The rigorous selection process guarantees only the most talented performing arts students make the cut.  Consequently, some will do whatever’s necessary to survive and thrive in this distinguished BFA program.  Then there’s politics - which can sometimes play a role in who’s admitted, who stays in and who rises to the top.We follow the students as they navigate the BFA program and their environment in the transition from teen to the adult world of college.  We see their personal challenges, the consequences of choice and independence, sexuality and survival, not only in the demanding performing arts program, but in the exciting and enticing “Big Easy”.  Produced by Brass Ring Enterprises and Undercover Prods.

THE WONDER KIDS

Directors:  Pamela J. Richardson and Jim Petersen

Screenwriter:  Jim Petersen and Pamela J. Richardson

Genre:  Documentary

 

The inspiring story of a tiny, family-run dance studio that never stopped believing it could make a difference and ended up succeeding in a major way.  Setting the lofty goal of saving the art of tap-dancing, while saving as many inner-city kids from the streets as they could, the Kennedy Tap Studio has been doing just that for decades.  Considered by many to be the world’s best children’s tap studio ever, the Kennedy’s worked with many accomplished dancers, including Savion Glover, Debbie Allen, Jason Samuels Smith and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, who are all intereviewed in the film.  The Kennedy also trained an mpressive number of singing legends to dance, such as Michael Jackson,  Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and Gladys Knight and the Pips.  Often billed as “THE WONDER KIDS,” Kennedy students have performed in film and TV shows, and worldwide in places like Russia, Japan, Finland and Brazil.   The documentary is hosted by Dick Van Dyke and features the last interview of Fayard Nicholas of the Nicholas Brothers before he died in 2006.
