Introducing: Fumble!

I can’t believe its finally time to clue you all in on my super secret project of the last 6 months……but the day has arrived that I can tell you all about a brand new MOVIE I’m co-authoring called Fumble – and it’s about you!  I’ve been brought on board with an all-star group of writers, editors, and dialog specialists as the “subject matter expert” to bring you a new dance team story filled with laughs, heartache, dreams, and redemption.  I had such a great time building in authentic dance team moments from our own experiences here in Minnesota and I got to work in a few secret “nods” to things we see happen in our sport and in my history as a coach and dancer. I am so pleased to see dance team treated as a real sport – as athletes – and not just cheerleaders with a few pirouette turns.  I couldn’t be more proud of the script – and now its your turn to help us out!


The movie business is a funny place – you can’t get your favorite movies made without an audience screaming in support for it first.  “Who cares about dance team?” They say.  We do!!  And that’s where you can come in.  We have a new Facebook and twitter page in support of Fumble – and we sure could use some friends!  “Like” our page over at: Fumble: The Movie and add us at @fumblethemovie on Twitter.  While we’re only a script today…..with your help we’ll have interest in producing the film all about what it takes to be a dance team girl when the odds are against you.


Next we need some teams to make us some quick videos asking for Fumble to be made  — a movie about you!  Dance Team!  Post those to our facebook wall or tweet us your instagram or vine videos.  Soloists being “themselves” (dancing, of course) are much encouraged to tag us in their videos too!  Spread the word, and help us make Fumble a reality!
