High Strung Movie Releases in U.S. Theaters April 8, 2016

Dance – there are so many forms of it, from ballet competitive, children as young as three years old begin taking classes with professional instructions to learn the techniques of their preferred style of dance. My nephew started dancing at a very young age, and began entering competitions with his dance partner at a young age. Prior to his involvement I hadn’t even know that competitions were held for children so young. A combination of my nephews love of dance, and memories of my time with ballet, have always made me a fan of dance movies. Naturally I was eager to catch an advance screening of the High Strung movie.

High Strung invites audiences to See the Music and Hear the Dance! Starring actress Keenan Kampa who plays Ruby Adams, a small town Midwest girl from the “right” side of the tracks and Nicholas Galitzine who plays Johnnie Blackwell, a British musician from the “wrong” side of the tracks. This pretty much sums up the background of many dance movies; however, there is something very different and unique in High Strung. Combining the talents of a musical prodigy, disciplined dancers, and a group of hip-hop dancers, there’s no telling how far this new crew can go. Jane Seymour plays the unforgettable Oksana – a must see!

High Strung Movie Synopsis:
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 Switch Steps, 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.

High Strung is rate PG and opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, April 8, 2016. High Strung runs for 97 minutes and is categorized in Dance, Musical, and Romance. Find tickets and showtimes for High Strung here.

  • Dance movies usually have the same recycled plot — but I don’t care! I love dance as an art form, and I don’t care the style! I don’t watch them for the acting (which is usually not that good, although there are some exceptions) or the plot, just give me awesomely choreographed dance sequences, and I am a happy camper. I never heard of this movie before your blog post, but I am adding it to my must-see list. Thanks for the heads up! 🙂
