"Putting it out there who wants to go thirds in a goat?""
Benjamin Tickle is like a puppy -- boundless energy, cheeky, scruffy, and more than slightly hopeless. He's been blessed with a huge talent for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, but this doesn't stop him from talking far from it -- one of his real charms is that he'll try to make friends with anyone and usually succeeds. Ben is excited to be able to attend the Academy and, while relaxed about almost everything, Ben is intense about his dance training. This is Ben's year to make it what he wants on his terms.
Tara Webster grew up on a farm in the country, but she has always dreamed of being a professional dancer. When she's admitted to Australia's National Academy of Dance, she feels like all of her dreams are about to come true -- but the school is tougher and more competitive than she ever imagined.
Tara's far from home, and way behind on her dance training, but she's not alone on this journey. In Sydney, she meets new friends, Kat and Sammy, and falls hard for a new crush, Ethan. To round out her crew, there's Abigail, a more experienced dancer who sees Tara as a threat, and Christian, an adrenaline junkie with a troubled past.
They've got the world at their feet, but have they got what it takes?
