Kenny Ortega Is the Newest Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

July 24, 2019

Congrats to Kenny Ortega, who just earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame!

The legendary choreographer and director was presented with the 2,667th star on the iconic thoroughfare yesterday. Ortega’s mile-long list of achievements includes everything from Dirty Dancing (1987) to Newsies (1992). And that all came BEFORE the dance-filled franchise we hold near and dear: High School Musical. His latest project was directing and choreographing Disney Channel’s dancetastic Descendants movie trilogy. With this extra boost of starpower, we can’t wait to see what he does next. From all of us at Dance Spirit, congrats, Kenny!
