CENTER STAGE is a drama that follows the hopes and dreams of a tight-knit group of young dance students as they try to make a name for themselves and become stars in the fiercely competitive world of professional dance.
Vibrant and supremely gifted, they are students who devote themselves to their art, sacrificing ordinary pleasures of life to train with the rigor of Olympic athletes. While experiencing the normal joys and sorrows, loves and conflicts of youth, they vie for a place in an ultra-selective professional dance company. Featuring a wide range of music, from Tchaikovsky to Jamiroquai, CENTER STAGE traces the story of these fresh-faced, talented friends as they strive to take their place center stage.
