Dancers showcase $25-million Corona del Mar mansion in video
The Smith Group has done it again.
The real estate company that brought you “Teach Me How to Duffy” has another high-gloss video filled with dancers gliding, twirling and bursting throughout a sleek Newport Beach estate.
The latest one is to promote a listing for a 9,600-square-foot modern mansion in Corona del Mar.
The six-bedroom, 10-bathroom house at 2928 Ocean Blvd. has never been lived in. To become the first occupant will cost $24.995 million.
Eight dancers showcase the home’s basement-level game and media rooms, the sunlight-drenched great room and the expansive rooftop deck that offers commanding views of the Newport Harbor entrance. There also are steam and fitness rooms, a wine cellar, a wine-tasting and cigar room, two laundry rooms and an elevator. Six of the bathrooms are en suite.
The youthful dance troupe in the three-minute video, posted Tuesday, includes Du-Shaunt “Fik-Shun” Stegall (men’s winner of Season 10 of “So You Think You Can Dance”), Briar Nolet (“World of Dance” Season 3 and dance opening act for Jennifer Lopez’s recent tour), Michael Dameski (“World of Dance” Season 2) and others performing gymnastic ballet, contemporary and hip-hop moves.
The dancers are popular social media personalities, with about 10 million followers combined, giving the clip wide potential exposure.
Six buyer groups have already passed through the home, Smith Group principal Tim Smith said Friday.
Smith said the home is on the best lot in Corona del Mar and is significant because it’s a legacy for builder Chuck van Cleve, a longtime local luxury specialist who died this year.
Chris Light was the architect. Slayman Design did the interiors.
The “Duffy” house, meanwhile, sold this fall for $35 million after being on the market for nearly a year. The video for that house, on three waterfront Balboa Peninsula lots on East Bay Avenue, followed a cast of social media personalities and the artists behind the viral 2010 party anthem “Teach Me How to Dougie” as they rapped, danced and frolicked in the house and around Newport Beach, in and out of Duffy boats, while describing the home’s features and making several local references.
The Smith Group, which specializes in coastal Orange County luxury properties, routinely works with professional filmmakers and performers to create energetic marketing videos.
The group’s last posting before this one was a Halloween-timed video showing a couple welcoming a pair of zombie newcomers to their new $14.9-million home in the Strand at Headlands in Dana Point.
