Adapted from a popular Japanese manga (comic book) of the same title, Dance, Subaru! is a motivating tale about the self-realization of a young ballerina under adversity.

Subaru (Meisa Kuroki) and her twin brother Kazuma share a passion for dance, but they do not have the fortune to receive formal training. Kazuma dies of a brain tumour at the young age of 10. After Kazuma's death, dancing became Subaru's only happiness, but is discouraged by her widower father who expects her to chart a more conventional education. This difference of hearts has alienated the father and daughter relationship ever since.  Subaru's life takes a dramatic turn when she runs into a cabaret owner Isuzu (Momoi Kaori), who is a retired ballerina herself. Isuzu, recognizing the talent in Subaru, takes the kid under her wing and trains her. By the time she turns seventeen, Subaru is performing botched-up ballet numbers regularly at Isuzu's cabaret, which affords Subaru to pay for ballet lessons at Madam Mako's studio. Madam Mako's daughter, Mana (Sano Miku), is Subaru's classmate since early grade school. She loves Subaru as a friend but is also embittered by Subaru's talent.
A third young ballerina, Liz Park (Ara), a Korean American, is a star pupil at the famous American Ballet Theatre in New York. Liz runs away to Tokyo out of boredom from the tedious life as a ballet student. She sees in Subaru a worthy competitor, a catalyst to revitalize her waning enthusiasm for ballet stardom. All three girls end up contesting with one another in Shanghai...
