‘Footloose’ stars Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald grooved on over to The Voice studio at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia last week. Opening up to the kids in the audience, the two dancers spoke candidly about their childhoods and their rise to fame.
Julianne shared details about her time in London as a child. She practiced dance and attended elementary school in the British city for five years! Kenny started out as a tap dancer before moving on to back-up dancing in music videos and on tours. While most of us know Julianne as the amazing dancer on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ she revealed that her first on-screen experience was as an extra in one of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies! She acted as an audience member during an intense Quidditch match. We had no idea!
After their interview, the talented performers taught the kids some super cool dance moves. In the middle of their fun lesson, Philadelphia’s mayor, Michael Nutter, walked in to greet the celebrities and welcome them to his city. He then took a break from his political duties and became DJ for the day by putting on some great music for the kids to dance to. Mayor Nutter also took over as an interviewer, and pressed the visitors for details about their upcoming movie, Footloose, due out in theaters on October 14th.
The kids were absolutely ecstatic to have Julianne and Kenny visit them at The Voice! After the dancers left, the children could not stop talking about how much fun they had and how wonderful it was getting to meet such talented young performers. Chalk up another exciting day at The Voice!
