What is A Christmas Dance Reunion About?

Here is what this Lifetime movie is all about. According to The Futon Critic, successful attorney Lucy Mortimer (Coleman), along with her mother Virginia (Roberts) returns to the Winterleigh Resort to help celebrate the hotel’s final Christmas season.

Once there, Lucy is reunited with the owner’s nephew and her childhood Christmas Dance partner, Barrett Brewster (Bleu).

However, the resort has fallen on hard times and has stopped most holiday events. Lucy leads the charge in recreating the beloved Christmas traditions. Therefore, she has revived the popular Christmas Dance. She believes this will bring together new families and new hope to the resort.

Now, Lucy must decide if she’s willing to take a risk on love and partner up once more with Barrett for what could be the last Christmas Dance.

Fun Corbin Bleu Trivia

Did you know that originally, Corbin Bleu was going to be called Bullet Bleu, after the U2 song, “Bullet The Blue Sky?”

Bleu told the San Francisco Gate that “Bleu” was part of his real name. “It wasn’t even a stage name. That was going to be my name. Both my parents are big U2 fans. In fact, my mom is still stuck in the ’80s. She wanted to name me Bullet Blue, but my dad didn’t like it, so they ended up naming me Corbin. I think Corbin Benson was really big at the time.”

We should note that is likely that it was Corbin Bernsen that Corbin Bleu was referring to, and named after. At that time he was a big L.A. Law star, and that show is being revived. L.A. Law premiered in 1986, “Bullet The Blue Sky,” on U2’s The Joshua Tree album, came out in 1987. You can see Corbin Bernsen in the latest Peacock movie, Psych 3: This Is Gus.

Maybe Corbin Bleu needs to be in the next Psych movie?

Don’t miss the premiere of A Christmas Dance Reunion on Friday, December 3, on the Lifetime Channel.
