To the dance world's delight, the long-anticipated High Strung Free Dance is officially available in retail stores, other VOD stores, Amazon and iTunes.

It's produced by Michael and Janeen Damian—the creators of 2016's High Strung, starring Keenan Kampa—and is choreographed by Tyce Diorio and SFB soloist Myles Thatcher.
