At the New York City High School for the Performing Arts, students get specialized training that often leads to success as actors, singers, etc. This movie follows six students from the time when they audition to get into the school, through graduation. They are the brazen Coco Hernandez, shy Doris Finsecker, sensitive gay Montgomery MacNeil, the eccentric musical genius Bruno Martelli, the uneducated gangster boy Leroy Johnson, and the brash, abrasive Raul Garcia.

Dance Teacher: "You want fame? Well, fame costs and right here is where you start paying, in sweat!"
