Summary

Move not only amazes the audience with the capability of the body, but it gives powerful, impactful stories so we can understand it.

Netflix’s Move season 1 was released on the streaming service on October 23, 2020.


Dance reality competitions, film, and TV always sensationalize the life of dancing. It’s always marked as a lifestyle that just happens. Netflix’s Move is a documentary series that instills reality in the audience. It understands the art and integrity to sustain a dancer’s path; the struggle, the pain, and sacrifices that come with dancing; the mental and physical toll on a dancer for the beautiful art form.

In five chapters, Move season 1 chronicles different dancers. This is not a tutorial mouthpiece — these are separate biographies. The Netflix series brings to the surface a dancer’s life; their community, upbringing, and a sense of achievement. The makers of this series have given an honest and personal view of the world today, entwining the culture, and how dance is a form of communication.

When we view dancers, we do not see the struggle; we only see the flair. Move gives a full-circle view. The first episode that stars Jon Boogz and Lil Buck highlights how they turned to popping and jookin’ but couple it with inspiring and powerful stories about how they took street dance to the next level. The first episode documents how they saw music and dance; how environments triggered their view on music and made them feel a certain way. This series is a raw account of how dancers think and… move.

In terms of documentary style, Move follows the usual Netflix format that we’ve grown accustomed to. The streaming service has become the benchmark of documentaries; Move is beautiful to watch with well-placed shots of routine and an invasive approach on the people they are interview.

Move not only amazes the audience with the capability of the body, but it gives powerful, impactful stories so we can understand it.
