Quotes

Caleb is the music man. He saw the girls’ vision, he saw the vision of what the band could be before anybody else did, and he brings his EDM flair to their poppy voices. He’s the background to the girls’ talent. He’s the music man. He creates the music. And he’s crazy. His quirkiness and his clumsiness get him into trouble and creates some fun moments.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
My acting career started out very young, I was about four or five years old, so performing has been a life thing. I was such an energetic kid, I was crazy, people always thought I had way too much energy. I always got myself into trouble, much like Caleb. So I think performing was the right direction for me, and the most sensible direction that I would go in for a career. I hadn’t really thought of doing anything [else] – I don’t want to sit at a desk, I want to express myself and perform.

I haven’t been much of a singer and I’m still not much of a singer. I’m featured on some of the songs [in MAKE IT POP]. If you listen to some of the songs, you’ll catch a bit of me, you’ll catch a bit of the other cast, but dancing has been a free-flowing thing my whole life. I did jazz, I did hip-hop when I was fairly young, so it’s been freelance, just dancing to your favorite music, and now that I’m bringing it into the show, it’s choreographed and it’s an actual thing, it’s fun.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
[Caleb is] the deejay and behind the booth. The girls are mostly the ones that are having the defined choreography, where it’s definitely, they have to do this, this and this. For me, for choreography with Addy, it’s more like, “Make sure you get this kind of [movement], make sure you’re feeding to the crowd, make sure you’re doing this.” So I have most of the control, but she gives me feels, she points me in the right direction when I’m confused or when I’m needing help on certain things. So it’s nice. I like having a choreographer, because sometimes when I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do, she guides me in the right direction.

Yeah. It’s a regular boarding school [where] we add that artistic flair to Mackendrick Prep. For me, I grew up going to Catholic schools, just regular elementary schools, and then I went to a Catholic high school. I just recently graduated from my Catholic high school. I didn’t go to any performing arts schools, no.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
Most of my performing has been outside of school. I wanted to get into doing theatre and doing the stage stuff, but I never had the confidence to get up onstage and think, “Okay, I have one shot to do this. There are between fifty and a couple hundred people watching me.” It definitely got me nervous. I actually remember doing a monologue on stage at my school, and thinking that all my friends are watching, having a spotlight on me – it was nerve-wracking. So I never really got into the whole theatre thing. I mostly stayed in front of a camera, which was my comfort zone.

The girls are phenomenal to work with. I say this a lot in interviews – sometimes I love having the guys that are a part of the show, like John Alan and Matt Baram, on set, because I get my guy time, I get to be among guys. Because being with the three girls is great, but they have their own thing, they do their own thing, they have their girl time. So sometimes having my guy time is great.

As of now, no, I’m driving my mother’s car. My ideal car is probably a vintage Mustang. I love Mustangs – they’re loud, they’re manly.

Currently, I love Future House. Future House is my genre that I’m in right now. So Tchami, Blau – I’m not sure if you’ve heard of these artists, they’re all Future House artists – Funkin Matt, they’re all great artists, and those are who I’m listening to. [Future House] is a branch of the EDM genre, that’s electronic dance music. It originated as Deep House, and then Future House is kind of a more upbeat techno version of Deep House, so Future House is kind of the more fun, lively [music] that you’ll hear in most concerts.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
No. I’m a very EDM [electronic dance music] and Deep House-based artist. I like having that kind of feel, so when I’m in the studio, working with Andrew Dawson, my mentor, he’s a deejay, he’s brilliant, when we’re in the studio and we’re working, it’s mostly a feeling of music. Caleb writes the two hundred songs, he writes all the music for the girls, he gets all that kind of stuff, but I’m not a music writer. I’m actually a film writer. I like writing scripts. I love to write. I’ve written a short film recently.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
Actually, I’m going to be filming it this summer. I’ve made a couple of friends throughout the industry that I’m going to be working with while I’m getting the production done. Hopefully, I’m going to be able to enter it in some festivals, see how it does there. Because eventually, in the future, my path in the industry is moving on to producing and writing and directing. I would love to be able to direct it. So getting some of my own stuff done now I think will help.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
It’s untitled as of now. That’s one thing that I’ve been really working on. I’ve had the script done for about a year now and just the title isn’t coming to me. I think it’s one of the most important things when it comes to a script, is figuring out the title, because that’s what’s going to draw the audience in, draw what they’re going to see.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
Absolutely. I’ve actually given my script to some of our writers and they’ve given me their feedback, and it’s definitely helped, because I can see where their points of view are coming from and it’s moving my mind in the directions that I’m wanting it to go, which is cool. It’s extra branches that I’m adding to my tree of knowledge.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
Yeah. One of our behind the scenes directors, Sam, is going to be helping me, he’s got a couple of friends who have equipment and we’re going to hopefully get in touch with some university students to come be cast. We’re still in early phases of pre-production, so we’ll see how things go.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
Well, acting is obviously fun, or else I wouldn’t be doing it. That’s the lucky thing about this industry, is that we’re doing something that we love – hopefully, everybody in this industry loves – and we’re fortunate enough that we’re getting paid to do what we love. So acting is definitely my first priority at the moment, but getting these contacts in the industry is amazing, it’s definitely going to help me further on in the future, it’s helped me get my crew that I’m going to be doing my short film with, it’s doors that are being opened that were never opened before.
—Dale Whibley during an interview
That the music will blow your mind. It’s very catchy, kids are going to want to listen to it over and over again, they’re going to want to sing to it, they’re going to want to dance to it, the show itself is visually appealing – the wardrobe, the set – everything is very fun.
