Christian Reed (Jordan Rodrigues)

Jordan got his professional start playing Simba in The Lion King musical and made his TV debut in Home and Away. Since the Dance Academy TV finale, he has been acting steadily in the US, including recurring roles in The Fosters and Faking It.

Kat Karamakov (Alicia Banit)

Alicia's first gig was playing the young version of Miranda Otto's character in Dead Letter Office. You might also recognise her from Summer Heights High and the Australian version of As The Bell Rings. After the Dance Academy movie, Alicia will appear in sci-fi series We Were Tomorrow.

Ben Tickle (Thomas Lacey)

Thomas joined Dance Academy as Ben in season 2, and has since appeared in Winners & Losers, as well as taking on the starring role in the Strictly Ballroom stage musical.

Ollie Lloyd (Keiynan Lonsdale)

Keiynan also joined Dance Academy in season 2, and in between the show ending and filming the movie, he nabbed roles in the Divergent movie series, historical thriller The Finest Hours, and a recurring role on The Flash.

Sammy Lieberman (Thom Green)

Although he won't be returning for the movie (RIP SAMMY!), Thom acted alongside many Dance Academy alumni in the NBC show Camp, and he also appeared in the mystery movie Downriver.

Grace Whitney (Isabel Durant)

Isabel is another Dance Academy grad who won't be appearing in the movie. Since the show finished, she scored a starring role in Mako: Island of Secrets, and also appeared in - you guessed it - Camp.
