Mina is chosen to join a hip-hop crew — except she can’t dance.

12-year-old Mina is a timid, straight-A student focused on school until the famous hip-hop dancer ED Win moves into town. Mina quickly falls in love. She even decides to participate in a competition to get into a hip-hop show he is taking part in. At first, she does not fit in with the hip hop clichés but with the help of her flamboyant grandmother, she will overcome social pressure, accept her body and assert herself with her own style.

Dancing Queen is a breezy coming-of-age comedy influenced by well-known classics like Billy Elliot (2000), Dirty Dancing (1987) and Little Miss Sunshine (2006). Gossé skillfully balances lively dance numbers and a memorable soundtrack with poignant ruminations on the deeper themes of identity, family, and friendship.
