Might be entertaining for the teenage crowd.
31 August 2015 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

We came across this movie on Netflix streaming. My wife especially likes the movies where young dancers perform so we tried this one. Frankly it is so "camp" that we were not able to stay awake to finish it before bedtime. So the next morning I put it back on to finish. The main story, of a new transfer to a high school who then gets mistreated by the mean girls clique has been done so many times there isn't really anything new here. Plus the actors are all trying to start a career so they really do come across as dancers trying to act. Some are better than others.

The star is cute Lexi Giovagnoli, age range totally unknown, as Gabby Colussi. She is from California, she hopes to go to medical school, but for some reason transfers to a high school in S. Carolina. She finds out about a dance club and an upcoming competition and since dance is her first love is easily talked into joining them.

There is a vain mean girl, who envisions herself as God's gift to dancing, she and her mean mother, the school Principal, try to see to it that Gabby fails. But a nice young man, also age range totally unknown, is Justin Ray as Brad McBride who desperately needs tutoring, that is how he gets hooked up with Gabby. But we find out he is also a former dancer and Gabby bargains with him, she will keep tutoring him if he agrees to be her dance partner.

There is nothing particularly interesting or surprising in the resolution to the overall story. The nice and worthy students get what they seek while the lying, cheating students get their comeuppance. Some of the young actors may have futures in the business but they need better roles.
