“C Me Dance,” the first film produced by Uplifting Culture – a new faith-based motion picture company – will premiere in 200 theaters across the country on April 3. The film is being endorsed by the Leukemia Foundation and the Dove Foundation for excellence in filmmaking.
“C Me Dance” tells the story of a teenage girl named Sheri, played by new actress Christina DeMarco, who has trained her entire life to dance for the Pittsburgh Ballet. As her dream comes true, she finds out she is dying from a rare blood disease.
Through the illness, God uses Sheri to bring people to Christ, but the devil tries to intervene. Sheri and her father, Vince, played by veteran actor, writer and film producer Greg Robbins, are sent on a spiritual adventure to bring revival to America.
The movie’s soundtrack features such recording artists as Lincoln Brewster, Eowyn, Stephanie Fraschetti and Terri Shamar.
“This heart-warming, tear-generating thriller will keep audiences on the edge of their seats and touch everyone, giving us a rejuvenated love for Christ and a deeper passion for life,” Robbins said.
The Dove Foundation, which awarded the movie four out of five “doves,” calls “C Me Dance” a “thrill ride with tender emotions all the way.”
“‘C Me Dance’ is a wonderful and intense movie that needs to be seen,” said Don Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association. In conjunction with the film’s release, Uplifting Culture is sponsoring an essay contest for middle and high school students.
Gift cards in the amount of $200 will be awarded to the top 20 winners – 10 from each of two categories.
There will be two grand prizewinners – one from each of the two categories. Each of the two grand prize winners will receive $2,000 to be awarded to their chosen private or public organization. Five thousand dollars will be donated to the Leukemia Foundation on the student’s behalf.
Both grand-prize winners will also receive a certificate from the Leukemia Foundation. In addition, a Dove Foundation Recognition trophy will be awarded to the student by the star of “C Me Dance,” Christina DeMarco.
