Growing up, dance was something I absolutely adored. Learning choreography and just being able to let go with the music has always been something I love. It comes as no surprise with that love of dance and music, I’ve always loved movies about music and dance.
Tomorrow, Friday, April 8th, High Strung opens in theaters and if you are near one of the locations, I highly recommend checking it out. You’ll find yourself following two talented individuals that are both trying to make their way in New York City and both passionate about their art, one dancing, the other music.
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.
When you have a talent and something you love, you have to follow your dreams. High Strung reminds you that anything is possible when you just believe in yourself. This movie reminds me alot of a movie I loved as a teenager.
