DANCE TO YOUR OWN BEAT.
Quinn (Sabrina Carpenter) is desperately trying to get admitted to Duke University and believes joining a dance squad may be her ticket – even though she can’t dance. Another Netflix attempt to lure in young, female audiences, this time with a bouncy dance movie co-produced by Alicia Keys. Her name turns out to be no guarantee for quality entertainment. Former Disney Channel star Carpenter is appealing in the lead, but in spite of a few engaging dance numbers this innocuous, formulaic comedy lacks spark (and attitude).
2020-U.S. Made for Streaming. 93 min. Color. Directed by Laura Terruso. Cast: Sabrina Carpenter (Quinn Ackerman), Liza Koshy (Jasmine Hale), Keiynan Lonsdale (Isaiah ”Juilliard” Pembroke), Jordan Fisher, Drew Ray Tanner, Michelle Buteau.
