Media and press packed the purple carpet to catch a glimpse of teen celebrities like Twilight: Breaking Dawn's Booboo Stewart and Kenton Duty, star of the Disney hit show "Shake it Up" who came to support iDanceMachine's world premiere on Saturday October 22nd.
As part of the celebration, Andamiro Games brought out a "Pump It Up" Dance Machine which doubled as a photo spot for celebrities and continuous dance exhibitions by amazing IDM dancers. Filmed for broadcast on the iDMTV (iDanceMachineTV)
Aimed not only to premiere IDM's music video, but also to raise awareness and encourage kids to stand up against bullying, the iDanceMachine world premiere was partnered with My Life My Power, a non-profit organization founded by undefeated mixed martial artist, Daniel Puder.
Many celebrities came to show their support for the cause including: Booboo Stewart (Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 & 2) with sisters Fivel and Sage Stewart, Kenton Duty (Shake it Up), Choreographer Christina "Pasty" Grady (Shake it Up), Renee Olstead (Secret Life of an American Teenager), Jared Kusnitz (PROM, Secret Life of an American Teenager), Allisyn Arm (Sonny with a Chance), Cayden Boyd (Fireflies in the Garden), Raven Goodwin (GLEE), Abigail Hargrove (Brad Pitt's new film World War Z), Warner Music International Pop Artist KEANA, Dancer Marissa Heart, SAVVY (Ca$h Money Recording Artists), Frequency-5, and many others.
Those lucky enough to get in the (sold out) student screening were ushered in the theater where they were greeted by a live DJ who kept the crowd pumped up prior to the show. Each student received a goody bag with REAL 3-D glasses, a pack of HI-CHEW candy by Morinaga America, and a Justin Bieber toothbrush courtesy of Brush Buddies.
Celebrities and VIP's were then ushered to the exclusive after party, held at The Media Dance Centre (steps from the theater). Guests enjoyed hor d'oeuvres and a chocolate fountain by Will's Bountiful Harvest, snacks by PopChips, and beverages by Hint Water, Noah's Sparkling Water, and Dark Dog Energy Drinks.
