What did you think of this film?
The story of Zander Raines, a dazzling and tempestuous young choreographer (Thomas Doherty) who gives the break of a lifetime to two hopeful artists when he casts a stunning contemporary dancer, Barlow (Juliet Doherty) and innovative pianist, Charlie (Harry Jarvis) in New York’s most-anticipated new Broadway show: Free Dance. But the move throws off the show’s delicate creative balance when Charlie falls hard for Barlow while Zander embraces her as his muse.

Might Charlie find the inspiration he needs from an unexpected mentor to go after all that he wants? Or will the show’s celebrity headliner, pop star Kayla Jordan stand in everyone’s way as she tries to stake her claim on both Zander and the spotlight? The emotions run hot igniting a rollercoaster of impassioned rivalry, romance and determination fueling the events leading up to the opening of Zander’s ambitious and innovational new musical. The question is, how much are these talented artists willing to risk for love?

In a city where only the best succeed, two radically talented people from opposite sides of the tracks need to find harmony to achieve their dreams.

Ruby Adams is a dancer from the Midwest on scholarship, living her first day in New York City. Johnnie Blackwell is a British musician, playing for money in the subway tunnels. Ruby’s world is classical and disciplined; Johnnie’s is improvisational and street smart. When a hip-hop battle gone wrong throws these two artists together, they immediately clash but can’t deny it when sparks begin to fly. Their lives quickly get entangled in the pitfalls that come with competing in New York City. With the help of a dynamic dance crew called The SwitchSteps, Ruby and Johnnie must find a way to save Ruby’s scholarship and keep Johnnie from being deported.

In an action-packed extravaganza combining cutting edge hip-hop with contemporary and classical dance, the two must navigate their opposing worlds and prepare for a competition where winning or losing will change their lives forever.
