Jordan Clark, Tottenham’s favourite dancer, has been cast in Family Channel’s The Next Step for a fourth season.
Clark, who danced her way into the hearts of the nation after wining the seventh and final season of “So You Think You Can Dance Canada,” continues to wow audiences with her dance moves, and has proven that she has what it takes to be a serious actor, too.
The Next Step is the story of A Troupe, a group of dancers, including Clark, who plays Giselle, working hard to get noticed in the industry, while practising together and overcoming the trials and tribulations of young adult life at The Next Step dance academy.
Season Four premiered on Family Day, Monday Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. on Family Channel – after a marathon weekend of reruns – and ager fans couldn’t be happier for the shows return.
If you missed the premier, tune in this Friday, Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. for an all new episode, and each Friday thereafter, to catch Ms. Clark in action!
The Next Step is the Family Channel’s flagship series, and is known for its jaw-dropping dance routines and high-energy performances.
Season four begins with A-Troupe returning home from their win at the International competition. The studio is now considered one of the best in the world, but achieving victory at the highest level has the dancers questioning their futures – some feel they’ve reached their full potential, while others are still waiting for their chance to shine.
Amidst the changes, a crop of talented but untested newbies are welcomed to the studio and the team must use every ounce of their talent and determination to recapture the old A-Troupe magic in time to defend their title at Regionals.
This season, fans of the show can expect to see special guest appearances by characters from past seasons, and cast members from spin-off series “Lost & Found Music Studios.”
This season also marks the directorial debut for cast members Trevor Tordjman and Lamar Johnson.
Clark and her cast mates learned that Family Channel was bringing back The Next Step while on tour in London, Ontario, for the first stop of the international The Next Step Wild Rhythm Tour.
The Next Step is produced by Temple Street, a division of Boat Rocker Studios, in association with Family Channel and is executive produced by Frank van Keeken (Lost & Found Music Studios, Wingin’ It, Kids in the Hall), Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (Orphan Black, Being Erica, Wingin’ It), and Laura Harbin (Lost & Found Music Studios, Wingin’ It). BBC Worldwide handles the international rights to the series.
