In the Heights the New Dance Movie for the summer

16th June 2021

In the Heights the New Dance Movie for the summer

Get back into dance, get inspired by the new Movie filmed in NewYork in 2019 feature an array of music and dance that we inspire everyone to get dancing.

More dance styles on screen than you’ll see in any other film, from contemporary ballet to B-boying to New York street styles flexing and litefeet. The movie features over 200 dancers, including Eddie Torres Jr to handle the Latin dance styles, ballet was given to Ebony Williams, “an incredible beast of a dancer”, Emilio Dosal (“like a sponge for all the street styles”) did popping, breaking and street dance.

This is a feelgood story of identity, belonging and a secret lottery win, full of heart, rich with character, bursting with music and dancing.

The movie In the Heights centres on a variety of characters living in the Dominican neighbourhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan.

At the centre of the movie is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the ageing Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighbouring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic.

Enjoy the movie which is released on the 18th June in cinemas across the UK. Showing in IMAX, Superscreen and 2D.
