'Step Up' for a backstage look at Motiongate Dubai's new dance show

November 23, 2016, 10:53 AM · We're less than one month away from the grand opening of the new studio-themed Motiongate Dubai theme park, and the park is starting to drop video previews of its upcoming attractions.

First up is a backstage look at rehearsals for its Step Up Dubai, All In! live, hip-hop dance show, which will play in the 1,00-seat Hollywood Theater in the park's Lionsgate themed land.

Based on the Disney/Lionsgate dance film franchise, the show is directed by Broadway veteran Michael Clowers and choreographed by Geo Hubela, working with Motiongate Entertainment Director Elaine Hinds, a 20-year veteran from the Universal Orlando Resort.

Also, while I was in Orlando last week for the IAAPA Attractions Expo, Dubai Parks and Resorts opened its Bollywood Parks Dubai, the second of the three parks in the new resort. Legoland Dubai opened last month and Motiongate will complete the resort's first phase next month. A second phase, including Six Flags Dubai, will follow in 2019.

Bollywood Parks Dubai is the first park themed to the world's most popular cinema genre, with attractions based on nine classic Bollywood films (Rock On!!, Don, Lagaan, Sholay, Dabangg, Mughal-e-Azam, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, RA.One, and Krrish) across five lands: Bollywood Boulevard, Mumbai Chowk, Rustic Ravine, Royal Plaza, and Bollywood Film Studios. The park also includes six themed Indian restaurants.

I will be in Dubai next month for the debut of the Motiongate and the grand opening ceremony for the Dubai Parks and Resorts, so keep following Theme Park Insider for full coverage.
