Sara joins Julliard in New York to fulfill her and her mother's dream of becoming the Prima ballerina of the school. She befriends her roommates, Zoe and Miles, who teach hip-hop classes. She has ballet classes with the rigid and famous Monique Delacroix that she idolizes - Monique requires full commitment, discipline and hard work from her students. When Miles, who is a composer, invites Sara to help him compose the music for the dance choreography Sara's passion for hip-hop is sparked and she also falls in love with Miles. When she is assigned to perform Giselle in an important event, she feels divided between the technique of the ballet and the creative work offered by Miles.Written by

weak lead in the same old story
Sara (Izabella Miko) is the innocent freshman in Julliard in NYC studying to be Prima ballerina under the tough famed dancer Monique Delacroix (Jacqueline Bisset). Zoe (Aubrey Dollar) is her wacky Texan acting roommate. Katrina (Maria Brooks) is her assigned mentor. Miles (Columbus Short) is a student substitute teaching in her hip hop class. She falls for the aspiring composer as she's pulled between the world of hip hop and the traditional ballet world.
The story is cheesy and very unoriginal. The main problem is that Miko is a relatively weak leading actress. The main saving grace for me is Dollar's friend character. She's funny cute especially when one of the first thing the movie does to her is to put her in an eye patch. Bisset is good as the grand dame of the piece. This is weak sequel with a poor actress at its center. However there are some minor good parts.
