I Am Untapped Potentional

October 16, 2014

Why do you love dance?

Seems like a simple enough question—but try to answer it, and your mind probably runs in a million different directions. Back in August, as part of a world-wide casting call, the upcoming dance film Untapped asked the dance community to answer this question. And the result was nothing short of inspirational. Check this out:

All of the feels. Untapped, which is set to begin production in 2015, is about a troubled young girl who discovers dance as a way to release her negative emotions. It celebrates the idea of untapped potential—the fact that there may be a brilliant dancer inside each and every one of us, just waiting to burst out. (Oh, and both Jasmine Harper and Marquese Scott are involved…so there’s that.)

While the official casting call has closed—they’re in the process of narrowing down the Top 200 submissions—there’s still a way to appear as an extra in the film. This week, Untapped launched an Instagram contest: #iamuntappedpotential. Here’s how it works:

  1. “Like” Untapped on Instagram (@untappedmovie).
  2. Take a pic of someone who inspires you (could be more than one person).
  3. Post the pic to Instagram.
  4. Tag that person(s) and thank him/her for inspiring you.
  5. Hashtag #iamuntappedpotential.
  6. Tag two other friends and encourage them to join the @untappedmovie movement.

One winner will be randomly selected each day (and announced the following day) to receive a free DVD of the film. On November 4, a grand prize winner will be chosen to be an extra in the film, and five runners-up will receive tickets to the world premiere.

So get ’grammin’!
