Feel The Beat is Netflix‘s newest feel good film. The movie tells the story of a big city girl who has no choice but to come back home after her dance career in New York City is sidelined by an embarrassing video. She finds herself back in New Hope, Wisconsin, where she moves back in with her dad.
After a run-in with an old acquaintance while she’s out shopping, April (Sofia Carson) is convinced to stop by the local dance studio and say hello to the girls there. When she learns an upcoming dance competition will be judged by professionals from Broadway, she agrees to help them train for it, thinking it’s her ticket back into the world of dance.
April soon finds she loves working with the girls, and it doesn’t hurt that her ex-boyfriend is still back in the small town and willing to help her out with the dance troupe.
