CENTER STAGE - The story

From Nicholas Hytner, the acclaimed director of THE MADNESS OF KING GEORGE, THE CRUCIBLE and THE OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION, and Academy Award-nominated producer Laurence Mark (JERRY MAGUIRE, AS GOOD AS IT GETS), comes CENTER STAGE, a drama with heart and energy 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 diverse musical palette-from Tchaikovsky to Jamiroquai CENTER STAGE traces the story of these fresh-faced, talented friends as they strive to take their place center stage.
