The sketch comedy/improv troupe Upright Citizens Brigade have a brand new dance movie, Freak Dance, playing  in just a few cities around the country right now, and Philly’s one of them. Tuesday through Saturday, May 22 through May 26, head for the Philly Improv Theater ‘s home at The Shubin Theater, 407 Bainbridge St., in Queen Village.

Directed by Matt Besser and Neil Mahoney, and featuring UCB founders Amy Poehler , Matt Walsh, Ian Roberts and Horatio Sanz, Freak Dance  is about a spoiled rich girl with dreams of dancing her way to stardom, and the rival dance gangs she finds herself caught between. The movie’s tag line: “Sometimes you got to take a chance and dance.”

Here's the trailer:
