Lauryn soon realises that her dreams might be harder achieve as she is rejected by the school. She ends up working in a burlesque club, even earning a dance spot, but the club is also a place of conflict and Lauryn must learn to hold on to her dreams, despite the trying times.

Here's what the critics had to say:

Flashdance gets a makeover and the results are Coyote Ugly in this teen trifle which couldn’t be more disposable if it came free with a copy of Sugar magazine.”
- Elliott Noble, sky.com

“If Make It Happen had a voiceover it would feature lots of gushing references to following your dreams, believing in yourself and every other rags-to-riches Hollywood cliché.”
- Kevin Maher, timesonline.co.uk

“It’s just as cheesy and just as icky, but calamitously fails to offer any high-octane dance to ease the pain.”
- Peter Bradshaw, Guardian (UK)

“There's dancing, there's emotion, there's an earnestly cheesy inspirational storyline, there's nothing you won't have seen before.”
- Daniel Etherington, Channel 4 Film


Embarking on a journey to fulfill her dreams as a dancer,a young girl discovers a new style of dance that will prove to be the source ofboth conflict and self-discovery.
