Canada’s Boat Rocker Brands and Australia-based Haven Licensing have collaborated on a clothing line featuring the cast members of Radical Sheep’s live-action TV series The Next Step.
Haven Licensing, which was recently appointed to represent the tween series down under, is launching the leisure apparel line for girls on the heels of the recent sold-out The Next Step Live on Stage tour in Australia.
Licensee Caprice has signed on to manufacture the line, which will include leggings, leotards, sweaters and pajamas. Items will be sold at mass-market retailer Big W across the country beginning this month.
The live tour, meanwhile, will travel next month across Australia and New Zealand to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Auckland, Newcastle, Canberra, Hobart, Wellington and Christchurch. The 90-minute stage performance features 10 cast members from the TV series.
Filmed in Toronto, The Next Step features a group of elite dancers attempting to win the national dance championship. It airs on Disney Channel in Australia and New Zealand, and on pubcaster ABC Me in Australia.
Currently in its fifth season, the show is produced by Boat Rocker-owned Radical Sheep in association with Family Channel.
