About

Choreographed by world champion Parris Goebel and featuring some of the best hip hop dancers in the world, Born to Dance is New Zealand's first dance movie..

Tu Kaea (champion hip hop dancer Tia Maipi) has the chance to audition for K-Crew, the best hip hop crew in the country,  but he has to go behind the backs of his home crew and his best friend Benjy (Stan Walker: Mt Zion, The X Factor NZ).  Things get even more complicated when he starts falling for Sasha (Kherington Payne: Fame, The Dance Scene), the girlfriend of K-Crew’s leader.

When Tu’s old crew and new crew clash, he has to make a decision that will change his life forever. Caught between who he is and who he wants to be, Tu must find the strength to make his own breaks
