Lacey Chabert (“Christmas in Rome,” Mean Girls) and Will Kemp (“Spinning Out,” “Reign”) star in “Christmas Waltz” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, November 28 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s “Countdown to Christmas” programming event – your home for the holiday.

About The Movie:
After Avery’s (Chabert) storybook Christmas wedding is canceled unexpectedly, handsome and irreverent dance instructor Roman (Kemp) persuades her to continue with the 10 dance lessons she’d booked – the first sale of the studio’s resident whiz kid, Nicky (Church). As Avery takes lessons with Roman, and sometimes Nicky, she begins to open up and soon the pair seems to move together flawlessly – both on the dance floor and off. Roman helps Avery to take a holiday from perfection and to live in the moment, and in return, she helps guide him on a special business venture. Soon, however, the past threatens to trip up the pair, unless they can remember that the most important lesson in dance and in love is trusting your partner.
