Agents choreograph own firm

Clients include choreographers for 'N Sync, 'Monty'

HOLLYWOOD — Choreography agents Julie McDonald and Tony Selznick have ankled Kazarian/Spencer Associates, taking with them their entire client roster and agents Arla Dietz-Baim and Anie Dizon, to launch their own shingle, McDonald/Selznick Associates.

The only West Coast agents to rep choreographers in the feature film, TV, theater, live entertainment, tours and musicvid arenas, McDonald and Selznick handle ‘N Sync choreographers Darrin Henson and Wade Robson as well as Kenny Ortega, artistic director for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

The duo also rep Marguerite Derricks, choreographer for the feature “Charlie’s Angels”; Jerry Mitchell, choreographer for “The Full Monty” and “Rocky Horror Show” on Broadway; Travis Payne, who choreographed the dance numbers for “Coyote Ugly”; and Hi-Hat, who recently staged the cheers for Universal’s cheerleading pic “Bring It On.”

Demand growing

“The demand for leading choreographers has exploded over the last five years,” said McDonald. “Artistic direction and dance are key to producing profitable music tours, legit theater and corporate events, and that growth has continued abroad, so the move will allow us to expand globally.”

McDonald has been repping choreographers exclusively for nearly 15 years. Selznick, a choreographer himself, has been working with McDonald for the past five years.
