*When dance-talent Brandon's penniless mother moved for a job, he had to leave behind without actual goodbye his childhood love Jasmine from a wealthy family, who blames him. The star of a ballet school, Brandon constitutes a crew, eager to win fame and fortune in a competition, but lack of success is exhausting moral. Then ruthless entertainment entrepreneur Mary sets up a new competition, the National Nationals, with little prizes or budget, but irresistible media exposure. As both enter e-and make the cut, Brandon finds himself opposite Jasmine's crew, posing split loyalties as his jealous deputy has a crush on him, Jasmine remains vindictive. Ingrate Mary's son JT is charged with all the dirty jobs while she grabs the laurels, but he starts speaking up for fairness to the contestants and she exposes her meanness unaware the microphone is open.

Can love be rekindled despite the competition
31 August 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Some nice terpsichorean talent is on full display in Dance Off. Some talented dancing young people put this across and you don't mind the plot which involves a reunion of sorts between childhood sweethearts now rivals at different dance studios. Can love be rekindled between Shane Harper and Kathryn McCormick despite the competition.

People around both Harper and McCormick are urging both to get a mean on in regard to the competition. But amateur dancers Harper and McCormick prove they're professional enough.

There's a sub plot going on between David Burtka a former dancer himself and his Devil Wears Prada mother Carolyn Hennessy who is running the "National Nationals" competition. I swear that's the name.

Although you get the idea you are watching an extended version of the Disney Studio show Shake It Up, the talented and appealing young people make this an easy to take musical film.
