Hop To It Productions, producers of the popular Gemini nominated Pop It! TV series and website, announced a licensing and distribution agreement for the Canadian educational market with UGOT DANCE Canada, a leading provider of dance education programs to schools and childcare centres. The new program will launch September 2012, in Ontario.
“Kids know and love the dance-along show Pop It! and it is a great fit for UGOT DANCE,” said G. Randall Munger, founder of UGOT DANCE. “ Pop It! introduces exciting Star Power, as well as excellent original age-appropriate music and choreography into our extracurricular dance clubs. It also extends the health and fitness benefits of our dance clubs into children’s homes. UGOT DANCE students will receive a Pop It! DVD so they can continue their dance education at home with their parents. We could not ask for a more exciting way to get children active.”
Susan Nation, President of Hop To It Productions, added “Our award winning TV series Pop It! inspires kids with charismatic young hosts, catchy original pop songs, and cool choreography. We believe dance is a fun, accessible way for kids to get exercise and improve balance, strength, fitness, memory and self esteem. We have been very impressed by the UGOT DANCE programs and philosophy. We are thrilled that they have chosen to work with us and look forward bringing the joy of dance to more kids across Canada together.”
About UGOT DANCE Clubs
Starting in September 2012, UGOT DANCE will integrate Pop It! in to its extracurricular club programs across the country, featuring a different Pop It! song and dance routine each term. The Pop It! DVDs will serve as training tools for instructors, and the basis for standardized age appropriate songs, lesson plans and choreography. In addition, each UGOT DANCE student will receive a Pop It! DVD so they can practice at home.
