Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) is an improv and sketch comedy group that was originally based out of Chicago. Today there are UCB theaters in New York City and Los Angeles. They’ve created a parody movie called Freak Dance. I’ll let them explain it:
Freak Dance is a dance musical parody in the vein of Electric Boogaloo, Step Up, Dirty Dancing, You Got Served and every other dance movie ever made. The sexy and wealthy Cocolonia must escape her roots and learn to street dance with the help of Funky Bunch, who dreams of being the best dancer ever. They must save the Fantaseez community center from the Building Department and the evil gang banger dancers before it’s too late. Will the duo be able to save their home? Only love can save them now.
It’ll debut at the Austin Film Festival in October 21st, 2011.
