Kenny Ortega is the man behind some of the most memorable dance moves in pop culture history— Madonna's iconic "Material Girl" video, Dirty Dancing's steamy sequences and High School Musical's high-energy moves, just to name a few.
Now, the director and choreographer is releasing his most heartbreaking—and inspiring—project yet in honor of Michael Jackson, his friend of 25 years. Michael Jackson's This Is It is an unguarded look at the King of Pop's final days as he prepared for a series of comeback concerts in London. "We were about eight days away from leaving to London to do our final technical and dress rehearsals," Kenny says. "We were about three weeks from being ready."
