One thing we love around is movies and I was honored to get to see High Strung early. If you haven’t heard about this movie yet then you are certainly in for a treat. It is not often that I come across a dance and music movie that I enjoy for so many reasons. However as I said was honored to get to pre-screen it and I really enjoyed it. In fact I watched it while I was at the hospital getting tests done. Although I will tell you that this is a perfect date night movie in my opinion.
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.
Ruby is a dancer who is attending a prestigious dance school in New York City on a scholarship while Johnnie is British violinist struggling to find the purpose of his music. You can already tell that she is the straight-laced, rule keeper and he is the bad boy rule breaker. She needs to learn to set not only herself but her dancing free while he needs to learn control. Together they balance one another and blend their respective talents into something fiercely beautiful. Things bloom even more when they join forces with Johnnie’s neighbor, member of a free form dance crew, to enter a competition. What the viewer is left with is a perfectly blended harmony and visual spectacular.
