Andie (Briana Evigan) has been in trouble since her mother died of cancer and she was left in the care of her mother’s friend Sarah (Sonja Sohn). Andie loves to dance and has joined a street dance crew called the 410, who enjoy making a public nuisance of themselves. Sarah finds she can no longer cope with the rebellious teenager and decides to send her to her aunt in Texas. But when Andie is offered a position at the prestigious Maryland School of Arts (MSA), Sarah gives her another chance.
Andie’s school timetable clashes with her practice times for the 410 crew so she gets thrown out. At the same time, she earns the scorn of crew leader Tuck (Black Thomas). Andie then recruits members from the dance school to form a new crew. Among them is Chase Collins (Robert Hoffman), the younger brother of the school director Blake Collins (Will Kemp). Blake forbids any of the students to perform street dancing, but they disobey his orders and go on to gain the respect of other street dancers.
