Bella Parker has big dreams of becoming a professional dancer as well as the skills to accomplish that, but living in the shadow of her talented and well-known older sister who is also a dancer has given her a surplus of self-doubt. When the American Ballet Academy begins a search for modern dancers, Bella is encouraged to try out but has little faith that she'll make it to the finals at the dance training camp. As the pressure builds and the cutthroat world of dance begins to get to her, Bella finds needed strength in her new friends who help her power through to be the best dancer she can be.
