Four students from The Gold School in Brockton, Massachusetts—male dancers who shared their stories about the struggles of pursuing dance in the DanceLife TV “Male Voices” video series—will be performing November 15 on Dancing with the Stars.
Gold School director Rennie Gold announced that crews from DWTS will be visiting the studio this week to film Matthew Gilmore, David Guzman, Jacob Guzman, and Kyle Scanlan in class and rehearsal. The footage will be part of an anti-bullying segment that will run on the November 15 DWTS, which will also feature a live performance by the students.
“The producers have been pushing to have those boys on the show for over a year now. They have been talking to me about this since the DanceLife TV ‘Male Voices’ videos came out. They are also working to add Kenny into the mix,” Gold said, referring to Kenny Wormald, the star of the recently released Footloose remake. Wormald, a Gold School alumnus, danced on DWTS several weeks ago with his co-star, Julianne Hough.
The four dancers, along with the rest of the Gold School’s Project Moves intensive division, have been involved for the past year in a dance project known as “Accept ME,” a show of dance performances, spoken word, and video with a strong anti-bullying message. They have performed the show locally for public audiences, at schools, and at the Joyce Theater in New York City.
