Behind The Scenes With ‘Footloose’ Star Kenny Wormald

Kenny Wormald is one of the best-known dancers in American pop culture. You’ve seen him dancing with Julianne Hough in the 2011 remake of Footloose. He wowed you with his moves on the MTV show Dancelife. And he’s worked with artists like Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey. And now, he and a few fellow dancers from famed studio Millennium Dance Complex have teamed up with Zumba to unite the worlds of dance and fitness. We went behind the scenes with him to get to know him a bit better as we dive into #ZUMBAxMDCDANCE.

So – tell us who you are.


Wait – teach us how you cross them legs!
