Biography

A seasoned dancer with an impressive track record of performing with big-name talent, Kenny Wormald made headlines when he landed the lead role in the 2011 remake of the feature dance film, "Footloose. " The New England-born Wormald took to dancing early, studying various forms from the age of six and winning numerous awards by the time he graduated high school. He moved to Los Angeles in 2002, where he secured choreographed spots in film and on television, including music videos of well-known performers like Madonna and Mariah Carey. In 2007 he was cast on the MTV reality series, "Dancelife" (2007), and toured as a backup hoofer for Justin Timberlake. Wormald had a big break the following year when he appeared as a lead in the TV movie, "Center Stage: Turn It Up" (Oxygen, 2008). In 2010 his profile rose even more when he was cast as the star of "Footloose," after Zac Efron and Chace Crawford passed on the role, offering Wormald a major opportunity to showcase his acting skills and, like Kevin Bacon had 20-plus years earlier, his undeniable mastery of dance.
