FOOTLOOSE is a 1984 American musical-drama film that was loosely based on events that took place in the small, rural, and religious community of Elmore City, Oklahoma. It was then adapted for the stage in 1998 in London, on Broadway, and British national tours productions. This amazing story of an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to a small town and has the courage and talent to make a change where dancing and rock music have been banned. He brings the youth together to challenge the rules and be free! Because of the success of this script and score in September of 2010 filming has started for the remake of this film with a release date of October 2011. Come be apart of this fast paced, exciting musical while building your personal skills and working with others who have the same goal.
