Featuring wild choreography, booming rhythms and incredible moves by a talented cast, How She Move is an inspirational story with a solid dance core.

After the tragic death of her older sister, Raya (Wesley) must leave her private school and go back home to help her parents deal with their financial difficulties. Raya dreams of becoming a doctor, but soon finds herself drawn back into the world of dance she thought she’d left behind forever.

With her scholarship dreams on hold, Raya sets her sights on the $50,000 prize in the Stomp Monster competition. A gifted dancer but out of step with life in the old ’hood, Raya soon makes enemies with Michelle (Armstrong), the sexy leader of a rival stomp crew.
