Movie Info

A self-taught dancer from Detroit realizes that it takes more than natural talent to succeed in the real world when she is rejected from the most prestigious ballet academy in New York and takes one last shot at making her dreams come true. Kate Parker may be the best dancer that Detroit has to offer, but in New York she's just another wannabe entertainer with stars in her eyes. Ever since she was a young girl, all Kate wanted was to perform with the American Ballet Academy. She's sure she has what it takes to join their ranks, so when she's coldly turned away, she vows to sharpen her skills and prove her worth. After enlisting the assistance of a handsome hockey player-turned-dancer, Kate heads out to a cutting edge hip-hop club in order to learn the moves needed to earn her rightful spot amongst the most respected dancers in the world. Peter Gallagher, Kenny Wormald, and Ethan Stiefel co-star.

    I don't usually enjoy myself watching these type of films, i mean with all the dancing and shallowness. Well this one is not shallow at all, and the dancing/ballet scenes are indeed very exiting. Rachele Brooke Smith is dazzling, i say this because she is probably the main reason i continued watching from minute one. Extremely beautiful and sexy, amazing smile she mostly sustains the whole film. I'd deeply like to see her in more and more films. She makes good chemistry with Kenny Wormald (whoever he is) and turn up the stage with lots of passion and fire. Enjoy

    Not realistic. AT ALL. Only recommended for fans of dance movies.

    chemistry was great. but i was laughing my head off because what happened in the end was the unlikeliest thing ever! an untrained dancer getting accepted into one of the most prestigious BALLET schools in the country? yeahh..okay.

    This ballet drama of the American Ballet Academy is getting much better than the original because it has high energy and traffic-stopping dance moves like the following sequel of Step Up - amazing!
