After falling in love at a dance camp over the summer, Sage and Anthony don’t know when they’ll see each other again…but it might be sooner than they think. With a magical twist of fate, Sage finds herself enrolled as a new student at Anthony’s high school. Which is great! Except for the fact that everyone at school thought Anthony was at a football camp all summer. As the star player on the Eagles football team, Anthony has kept his love of dance a secret from everyone. But there’s no time like the present to embrace your authenticity, and Sage will inspire Anthony to do just that. A joyful and heartwarming musical filled with original songs, BEST SUMMER EVER will have you dancing in your living room. Fresh and inclusive, this film is made up of a versatile, fully integrated cast and crew of people with and without disabilities. — G.S.
