Dutch dancer lands part in British film
Distributor EOne Entertainment has announced that Dutch dancer Niek Traa will play a part in the British 3D dancing film Streetdance 2.
This will be the first major role for the 23-year-old Hip Hop artist from Eindhoven, who is known under his stage name ‘Just do it’. Streetdance 2 is a sequel to the British 2010 hit film about a group of London dancers. Shooting will start this week in a number of locations including Berlin, London, Paris and Rome.
The blond dancer from Brabant will be sharing the light with a number of famous international dancers. Algerian Sofia Boutella, one of Madonna’s lead dancers during her Confessions and Sticky & Sweet tours, has been cast in the lead part. Streetdance 2 is scheduled for release in movie theatres in 2012.
