Cara is a fourth-year ballet student at the prestigious Jewel Academy, and aspires to perform on the world’s top stages. When she meets Daniel, who already is a professional hip-hop dancer, she finds him arrogant and tries to avoid him at all cost. Eventually, Cara learns that Daniel is much more than that and realizes there is a mutual attraction between them. Their dates are filled with emotions that Cara could never imagine sharing with another person. During one of Daniel’s breaks from traveling with a Broadway production, Cara is late to an exam and is forced to forgo her senior year at the academy. Without her scholarship, Cara cannot afford to continue studying and living in New York. Daniel comes to her rescue when he offers to be her partner in “America’s Best Dancer,” a TV dance competition for couples that offers a $100,000 prize for the winners. Cara accepts and they audition, where she barely makes the cut by showing her ability with ballet. Will their relationship survive the ups and downs of the competition?
