The Universal Motion Dancers in the Movies

The Universal Motion Dancers (UMD) was an all-male group whose fame peaked during the '90s. In its heyday, UMD was so popular that they had lots of stage shows and television appearances. Of course, movies were also produced to capitalized on their popularity.

Their mother company, Universal Records, produced Sige ... Ihataw Mo! Dancin' with the Motion.
The movie's opening date - April 14, 1994 - may have been chosen to take advantage of the summer school vacation so many students who idolize the UMD would have the opportunity to go to cinemas. An original movie soundtrack was also released, and it was on tape (What?!) format.

The supporting cast is led by Claudine Barretto, who is one of the most sought-after young actresses at that time. Under the direction of Chito S. Roño, other cast members are Tirso Cruz III, Gina Alajar, Eric Quizon, Jimmy Santos and German Moreno.

The action movie was written and directed by Baldo Marro. Other cast members include Pia Serrano, Nova Villa, Ray Ventura, Bob Soler, Ogie Diaz, Daniel Figueroa, Charlie Mendoza and Kier Legaspi.
