Work It starring Sabrina Carpenter & Liza Koshy | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter) is a quirky and intelligent high school senior living in North Carolina with her single mother. She has one best friend, aspiring dancer Jasmine Hale (Liza Koshy), who has known her since kindergarten and always sticks up for her. Quinn's dream is to attend Duke University, as it is her late father's alma mater, and her mother wants it for her just as much as she does. She studies hard, earns straight As, and takes part in many extra-curricular activities, though she does not have much of a social life as a result.
After an interview with progressive admissions counselor, Veronica Ramirez (Michelle Buteau), Quinn is informed that her application is too similar to the other applicants, and that her chances of standing out to the admission's team are not good. Quinn then lies and tells her that she is a member of her high school's elite dance team, "The Thunderbirds," which is very well known around the state as the reigning champions of the "Work It" dance competition. Quinn enlists Jasmine's help to prepare her for an audition being held by the team in two weeks, as she is already on the team. Quinn's dancing skills improve by the time of the audition, but the team's ruthless leader, Julliard Pembroke (Keiynan Lonsdale), still rejects her. After Jasmine stands up to him and defends Quinn, Quinn suggests that the two of them start their own dance team to compete at "Work It". Jasmine reluctantly agrees, but is worried about not being there to be scouted by a recruiter from a dance academy in New York.
Quinn discovers a former champion of the "Work It" competition, Jake Taylor (Jordan Fisher), who stopped competing after a knee injury two years prior. Quinn approaches him at the dance studio where he now works, and asks him to be a choreographer for her team. He turns her down, mainly due to the fact that she approaches dancing as something that can be learned by thinking, and not with passion.
