Duane Adler is a Hollywood screenwriter, director, and producer most known for his work on dance and music-driven fare, particularly Save the Last Dance (Paramount Pictures: Julia Stiles, Sean Patrick Thomas) and Step Up (Disney: Jenna Dewan, Channing Tatum), and Make Your Move, starring Derek Hough and Korean superstar BoA, which Adler wrote and directed.[1] The success of Save the Last Dance and the Step Up franchise have put Adler in a unique category – as author of two of history’s top-grossing dance movies, and of the two of the top highest-grossing teen romances.[2][3]

His other screenwriting credits include VH1’s telefilm The Way She Moves, Weinstein Co’s Make It Happen, Skydance's "Northern Lights," and Fox Atomic’s Venice Beach.[4]

Adler is president of Hungry Yak Productions and partner in Connect Entertainment.
