When I first heard the new movie High Strung was coming out I knew that both of my older daughters would love it. They both dance and play the violin, so to see the two arts coming together is breathtaking.
High Strung The Movie is based in New York, 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. It is fun to see how they meet.
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. Ruby is trying to fit into her new dance school MCA while Johnnie is trying to find a way to succeed in the big city.
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.
We absolutely loved the story line of the movie and even though we knew that Ruby and Johnnie would fall for each other seeing them perform together is amazing! It is a must see movie for all. My dancer girls loved it.
High Strung opens in theaters on April 8th. You can find a list of theaters on www.highstrungthemovie.com.
