Over the years, girls everywhere have been dressing up and dancing around like the beloved orphan Annie. While those memories will last a lifetime, we recently upped the ante for a few lucky girls by inviting them and (their moms) to a styling session and dance class in New York in celebration of the upcoming “Annie” remake and Annie for Target collection.
To kick things off, Annie for Target designer Renée Ehrlich Kalfus helped the youngsters mix-and-match items from the limited-edition collection of girls’ apparel and accessories. Once the group was decked out and ready to dance, “Annie” choreographer Zach Woodlee used tunes from the movie’s soundtrack to lead them through a routine inspired by a scene from the film, which premieres in theaters nationwide on Dec. 19.
Check out the “Annie”-inspired cuteness in the video below, and get ready to shop the 25-piece collection exclusively at all U.S. Target stores and on Target.com beginning this Sunday, Nov. 16.

Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.
