Connecticut Dance Students to Appear on CBS Show 'Madame Secretary'

Seventeen local teenage girls traveled to New York City on Sept. 29 to take part in the filming of a segment of the hit CBS TV series “Madam Secretary.”

The girls, all students at Starr’s Studio of Dance in Kent, got to meet actresses Téa Leoni, who plays Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, and Katherine Herzer, who plays her youngest daughter, Alison.

“(They were) not as mean as we thought,” the girls said. Actually, much to their surprise, “they turned out to be really nice. They took the time to learn some of our names.”

The dance students weren’t dancing on the show. Instead, they had a crash course in soccer. They worked with a coach on Thursday, rehearsed on Friday and went on the set at 6 a.m. on Monday.

In the show, two of the girls play prep-school students and the other 15 make up the soccer team playing against the team McCord’s youngest daughter is playing on. The scene had to be filmed “over and over,” the girls said.
