Footloose co-stars Miles Teller and Ziah Colon sit down with SheKnows to discuss dancing their way through the movie and sharing their first on-screen smooch.

"Sparks and fireworks," actress Ziah Colon says of her first on-screen kiss to co-star Miles Teller in their new dance movie Footloose.

"I was good for me," Teller agreed during the interview, smiling at his co-star. They both laughed as they talked about the lip-lock Teller shared with Colon, which was his first on-screen kiss as well.

The remake of the 1984 dance movie classic Footloose tells the story of a city kid -- played by Kenny Wormald -- who moves to a small town where dancing is illegal. There, he falls in love with wild child Ariel -- played by two-time Dancing with the Stars winner Julianne Hough.

For newcomer actress Colon, this is her first feature film. She plays Rusty -- BFF to Ariel -- and the one girl in town who seems to have the most common sense. Teller plays Rusty's boyfriend, Willard. His character is plagued by having two left feet.

Teller explains to SheKnows how hard it was to actually dance off-key.

"I had to do this sort of dinosaur thing," he says, mimicking a slow-motion dinosaur walking down the street. Without that, he says, he was stuck for ideas on how to capture what it's like to be off-key.

Teller looked smooth while kissing Colon, though. This on-screen couple heated up their scenes with their adorable high school romance.
