Must List

The moment you've been waiting for: Dance Academy: The Comeback is out!

Yup, that's right! Your favorite TV drama series, Dance Academy, has finally made the leap to DVD. Now you can watch your favorite characters in all their glory as they travel to New York City in Dance Academy: The Comeback. And if DVDs are a little old-fashioned for you, the movie is also available on iTunes, Amazon, FandangoNow and Vudu. 

As if that wasn't good enough, we interviewed Jordan Rodrigues who portrays Christian Reed—and also starred in last year's Best Picture nominee Lady Bird—and asked him about the start of his Dance Academy career and his experiences on and off the set. 

Though he says his audition was a bit of a blur (which is totally understandable when you have to dance, act and calm your nerves all at the same time), he says he had an *amazing* time working on the chemistry reads with the other characters. 

"The final callback was a ballet class first and then we would do a solo routine...mine was hip hop. And then we would go away and practice our lines and get to the acting auditon," Jordan said, adding that it was very fun.

Once he got the part, the movie totally fell into his lap. He says going to New York was a crazy experience that he absolutely loved. He was obsessed with Central Park...and Pokémon GO!

"I remember in between takes we'd be going and catch Pokémon...not very professional, but it was a lot of fun," he said. And although having the park overrun with Pokémon fans was a little distracting, we had to ask if he caught any Pokémon himself while he was on set. His response? Yes! In fact, he nabbed a Pikkachu.

Jordan's favorite part of being in the new movie? Reuniting with the cast and crew that he considers family. 

"It was like going back home for Christmas," he explained. He said that the Dance Academy cast was there with him through it all.
