My son and I recently saw the movie “High Strung” , which opens in theaters April 8th.  We both enjoyed the movie, which was full of dancing (of all kinds and varieties), music, and some stars of one of our favorite TV shows, “So You Think You Can Dance”.  In fact, one of the companies that helped make the movie was the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which is the brainchild of the show’s hosts and producer Nigel Lythgoe and director Adam Shankman to help bring dance to everyone.

The show had a light plot, and of course a love story- the love of arts, but also of a young, down on his luck violinist and a blonde ballerina.


My son was able to meet choreographer Dave Scott, who has also appeared on So You Think You can Dance, as well as stars of the movie Keenan Kampa and Nicholas Galitzine. He loved seeing the people on the big screen in person, especially Dave Scott (whom he has been watching for years).

Please also join us for a Twitter Party tonight at 9pm EST to chat with the movie’s director, Michael Damian, and win great prizes.


About HighStrung:
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.
