Centurion: The Dancing Stallion | Amber Midthunder and Dana Gonzales on Mexican Culture of Dancing Horses

Amber Midthunder in Centurion: The Dancing Stallion

Amber Midthunder wasn’t familiar with the Mexican culture of the dancing horse competition. But, it didn’t prevent her from the opportunity to work with horses and director Dana Gonzales again in the drama Centurion: The Dancing Stallion.

The film also stars Aramis Knight (Into the Badlands), Michael Cimino (Love, Victor), Patricia DeLeon (Station 19), Sal Lopez (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), and Billy Zane (Titanic).

Here is the official synopsis:

Amber Midthunder (Prey, Rosewell, New Mexico) and Billy Zane (Titanic) star in this tale of overcoming adversity and finding strength from unexpected places. The journey begins as Ellissia (Midthunder) adopts a white stallion to train in the art of Mexican horse dancing. As she starts teaching the handsome but previously abused Centurion, Ellissia falls critically ill, which keeps her from competing in a celebrated equestrian event. Under the watchful eyes of her father (Zane), new ranch hand Danny (Aramis Knight) steps in as trainer, hoping to win the competition—and perhaps, Ellissia’s heart.
