High Strung Movie Trailer
Living outside of New York City, I am accustomed to the constant competitive nature that the area brings. Add in a highly specialized talent like the arts and you really up the ante. There’s a new movie out called High Strung that portrays the life of musicians trying to make it in the New York City area and I felt like I was watching the lives of many of my good friends.
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.

The choreography in this film is just as beautiful as the music. What really shines in this film is the artistic abilities of the cast and it is nice to see the arts portrayed in such a beautiful way.
