    Synopsis: 

    Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world.

But in Clare Barron’s raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power.
