o The Beat. follows 14 year old twins Mia and Mackie who have grown up dancing. From the time they were 3 years old, that's been their passion - there's just one difference. Mia loves tap and Mackie loves jazz. When a popular pop star launches an internet contest to find the perfect dance group for his next music video, the twins each form their own competition group, leading to a battle, at the dance studio and home, which allows their arch rival and neighbor, Avery, the best dancer of all (who knows it too) to get the upper hand in the contest.
