What’s your ideal Sunday night? If you’re anything like me, it involves curling up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and one of my favorite dance-y movies. So I’m especially pumped for tonight, because an all-new musical movie is premiering on ABC Family!

“Lovestruck: The Musical” tells the story of Broadway dancer Harper (Jane Seymour), who is forced to leave the spotlight after an injury, become a choreographer and raise her daughter, Mirabella (Sara Paxton). When Mirabella, the star of Harper’s next big production, decides to quit the show to get married, her mother is determined to stop the wedding. After arriving at the Italian wedding site, Harper takes a swig of an elixir that she thinks will dull the pain of her old injury. Instead, it magically turns her 30 years younger.

This quirky movie features a mix of original songs and some of your favorites by Lady Gaga, Madonna and Whitney Houston. And what would a musical be without dancing? Music-video choreographer Michael Rooney put together the fun moves, and recognizable dancer faces include Miranda Maleski from “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 8.

Check out the trailer below, and tune in at 8 pm EST on ABC Family to catch the premiere.
