Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. In Clare Barron’s raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds.
