IMTA Colleagues New Show Premiering on Nick!

Long-time IMTA colleagues Bryan Leder and Frederick Levy have joined with Nickelodeon to
create Dance on Sunset, an action-packed new children's show aimed at getting kids involved and off the couch. It is filmed before a live audience at the Nickelodeon Studios! The show will debut Saturday night, following the Kids Choice Awards! Then you can catch it weekly on Sundays at 8:30pm on Nickelodeon. The show will feature Quddus Phillippe as host, Nick 6 professional dancers, hot musical acts and choreographer Tony Testa.

Marjorie Cohn, Nickelodeon's Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development said, "Dance on Sunset is a hybrid...because we do have a competition aspect and a freestyle aspect. But it will also feel like a real lifestyle show. It will be one of the hottest parties on the air." "Music and dance are very important to kids right now, and we want to be everyplace they are, and we want to do it the Nickelodeon way," said Cohn.

Each week, Testa and the Nick 6 will teach an original dance in an easy to learn format so the audience and viewers at home can follow along! Dance on Sunset will also tap into its live studio audience for contestants to compete weekly for the "Sunset VIP" title through a series of freestyle dance competitions. Viewers can also learn the dance steps seen on the show via Nick's official site!

Stars slated to perform include Ashlee Simpson, Sean Kingston, Akon with Colbie and Menudo.
Among the guest-stars on tap are Janet Jackson, Omarion and Nickelodeon's own Miranda Cosgrove (star of Nickelodeon's hit comedy iCarly) and The Naked Brothers Band.

Leder, of BLT/Bryan Leder Management, and Levy, of Management 101, have been participating in talent seminars and looking for new talent at IMTA conventions for many years.

IMTA congratulates them both and wishes them continued success.

Tune in for this awesome new show Saturday night on Nickelodeon!
