Get ready, Disney Channel fans. There’s a new episode of Coop & Cami Ask the World airing Saturday, April 6 — and you’re not going to want to miss this one.
Why? Well, Kim Possible leading ladies Sadie Stanley and Ciara Riley Wilson are guest starring! In the episode, Cami (played by Ruby Rose Turner) learns she didn’t make the dance squad because Tara (AKA Ciara) believes she is way too preoccupied with her Would You Wrather channel. So Cami has to prove she can do both. J-14 caught up with Ruby and Ciara all about the episode. And as it turns out, the two Disney Channel actresses go way back in real life!
Ruby exclusively told J-14, “Ciara is amazing, I’ve known her for a long time. We first met in 2015 when we worked on Johnny Orlando’s ‘Sorry’ music video, which Ciara choreographed as well. We also danced together in a few of his live performances and then another video. Actually it was the video we submitted to audition for Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour — that was a lot of fun!”
Ciara added, “I met Ruby four years ago when I was working as a choreographer for my friend Johnny Orlando. I chose Ruby and her sister Nadia to dance with us for many of Johnny’s live stage performances and music videos.”
How cool is that?! The fact that these two got to work together again on Coop & Cami Ask the World is pretty awesome.
“To be back dancing together again, but this time on Disney Channel, was really cool!” Ruby, 13, gushed.
Ciara, 18, continued, “I play Ruby’s dance coach, so it wasn’t hard to tap back into the days of teaching her routines and rehearsing. It’s been so incredible to see Ruby blossom into this amazing and talented girl and I’m thrilled to be working with her again.”
So how do these two balance dancing and acting, you ask?
Ruby explained, “I don’t train in dance at all like I used to. It will always be a part of me — I’ll never not dance, but my focus has shifted in the last few years and it’s definitely more about acting and singing for me now.”
Ciara adds that it’s a bit challenging for her to balance both, but she seriously has a love for both.
“I love being able to have both dance and acting as my passions. It can be challenging to juggle both at times, so I go through periods of focusing on one over another. When it’s a busy season for acting, I focus on that. When it slows down, I shift my focus to dance! However, in an ideal world I’d always combine the two. I love my role in Coop & Cami Ask the World because I have equal parts acting and dance,” Ciara told us.
