Netflix has released the official trailer for their forthcoming dance comedy film titled Feel the Beat, featuring Descendants star Sofia Carson as her character gets recruited to train a misfit group of young dancers. This will mark Carson’s first leading role in a non-Disney film. Directed by Elissa Down, the film will be available for streaming on Friday, June 19. Check out the video in the player below!
In Feel the Beat, when talented, self-centered dancer April is banished from Broadway, she grudgingly moves back in with her dad in her small Wisconsin hometown. Trying her best to avoid everyone in her tight-knit community, including her first love Nick, April is reluctantly recruited by her former dance teacher to coach the town’s misfit group of young dancers. Initially believing she’s found the path back to Broadway, April gains so much more. A love letter to small towns, FEEL THE BEAT is a heartwarming comedy about chasing your dreams.
The film stars Sofia Carson (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists), Wolfgang Novogratz (The Half of It), and Donna Lynne Champlin (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend). It will also feature Rex Lee, Brandon Kyle Goodman, Lidya Jewett, Sadie Lapidus, Johanna Colón, Shaylee Mansfield, Shiloh Nelson, Justin Allan, Carina Battrick, Kai Zen, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Enrico Colantoni, and Dennis Andres.
Feel the Beat is directed by Elissa Down from a script written by Beautiful Boy writers Michael Armbruster and Shawn Ku. It is produced by Susan Cartsonis and Clement Bauer with Brent Emery, Suzanne Farwell and Aaron Barnet serving as executive producers.
