Footloose tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenager from Chicago who moves to a small town where dancing and rock music have been banned. Ren faces resistance from the conservative town leaders. Determined to bring joy back to the community, Ren rallies his peers to fight for their right to dance. Along the way, he falls in love with Ariel, the reverend's rebellious daughter. Footloose is a celebration of self-expression and the power of youth. The explosive movie musical includes dynamic new songs based upon the powerhouse hits from its bestselling Oscar-nominated score. Footloose celebrates the exhilaration of youth, the wisdom of listening to one another, and the power of forgiveness.
