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. Check out the trailer:

I really enjoyed High Strung. It’s a fascinating look at what it’s like to go to a music/dance school in New York City, and I really enjoyed watching Ruby and Johnnie work together and watch their relationship develop. The story really drew me in and I couldn’t wait to see how they worked it all out. The music was unbelievable. I love the violin music, and it truly spoke to my soul, but the hip hop music was just as amazing and definitely something that the kids enjoy.  The contrast between the classical music and dance and the hip hop music and dance makes this a movie that the entire family will enjoy.

    I love music and dance, also had big city dreams although I can barely walk! Thanks for giving me a heads up to a movie I’m sure I’ll love.

  2. My daughter loves movies like this given she was a ballet dancer. She and I will need to go see it when she gets done with school. I swear I have seen more dance movies with her. I love all the drama.
