As senior years students prepare for college, Quinn Ackerman decides on adding more extracurricular activities to her profile. Increased extracurricular activities means a higher chance of getting into a top tier college.
While Quinn and the her mother aim for Duke, Quinn lies on being in her college’s dance team in her interview. This leaves her begging her best friend Jasmine Hale, for teaching her basic dance moves.

Jake teaches Quinn to freestyle and to let her body drive her. Quinn’s team makes it’s way into the competition and the students bring out their inner dancers.
DO I RECOMMEND IT?
WORK IT (Netflix 2020) has a predictable story line, being similar to every other teen dance movie ever made. The movie is fun but lacks a good climax or even small packs of surprises to keep you hooked onto your seats.
The idea of casting popular new age celebs fetches views but the storyline makes the movie forgettable.
The movie’s story idea seems similar to The Kissing booth 2, where the lead needed to win a competition for getting funds for college.
It is a one time watch movie.
