Bille Woodruff (Honey franchise, "Star") returns to direct a cast of major star power, led by actress and dance sensation Teyana Taylor (Kanye West's "Fade", Madea's Big Happy Family) as well as Bryshere Y. Gray ("Empire", The New Edition Story) and Sierra McClain ("Empire", "A.N.T. Farm").

Honey: Rise Up and Dance will also be available as an original soundtrack packed with songs by notable artists including Chris Brown, Future, Migos, and more. The soundtrack will be available to own digitally on March 30, 2018.

Aspiring street dancer, Skyler (Taylor) is at a major crossroads in her life.  She's decided to try-out for the same dance crew as her formally trained sister Tosha (McClain) in order to compete for a college scholarship, but is discouraged by her family and boyfriend who doubt that her raw, edgy talent is enough for her to win.  Determined to prove them all wrong, Skyler practices non-stop in Atlanta's underground dance scene and catches the eye of Tyrell (Gray).  He helps her take her sexy dance and hip-hop battle skills to the next level in order to achieve her dreams.
