Every year, Dance Makers, Inc hosts regional dance competitions across the US for all age groups. The competition is fierce and the pressure that young boys and girls put on themselves is intense. In the pursuit of trying to beat each other, the art of dance is nearly lost completely. Director Jake Viramontez goes into the lives of three female high school dancers from different cities to get an intimate look at the fears, insecurities and desires during a competition season. At each competing city, these girls come in contact with mentor and teacher Kathryn McCormick, celebrity dancer from Step Up Revolution & So You Think You Can Dance. Her voice of inspiration and hope begins to shift the perspective of these girls until they come to the ultimate realization that dance is not about the competition, but about finding the beauty in who they are, and who they are becoming.
