The story follows Danielle (Dani) Bolton, an upper class Brooklyn girl who defies her parents in order to attend a college in Atlanta so she can join - and revitalize - their once-prominent drum line. Dani's quest to become the first female section leader of the drum line in the school's history will be hampered by upperclassmen (including her cousin, Tyree), her feelings for fellow band mate and rival, Jayven, and the school's crosstown rivals.

Did You Know?


It began filming in May 2014. See more »


In the marching scenes, the way the video lines up, the band is sometimes marching on the left foot and sometimes with the right. Given that the music they were playing at the time was in a 4/4 meter, they would not have been switching which foot leads from measure to measure as one would when playing mixed meters, so this is clearly a syncing issue.

Amazing Movie
28 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

So many amazing action and drama packed scenes, and the acting was beyond perfect. The movie teaches that you have to follow your dreams no matter what other people will think about you. "Drumline: A New Beat" was something amazing and I hope they'll make a 3rd movie sometime soon. Hopefully the future generations will get a chance to see this movie and understand that no matter what you do, you cannot give up if that's what you want to reach. Alexandra Shipp nailed it with her amazing acting skills as well as the fellow cast stars like Jordan Calloway, LeToya Luckett, Jasmine Burke, Nick Cannon etc. I really enjoyed watching this movie.
