Recognized for his excellence in modern-style dancing, our main character Jim is one of the familiar faces signed under the performing arts studio, Ramlee Studios. On his journey to make this world his stage, he upholds the notion that the only way up as an artiste is anything but traditional.
Hani is the new dancer of Ramlee Studios who was recruited to replace a lead dancer who left the studio. She is a determined and confident persona whose passion lies in the performing arts. As she climbs the ladder of this cutthroat industry, Hani brought along her long-time mission to revive traditional components and cultural identity in today’s Malaysian entertainment.
A long-time friend and room mate to Jim. Extroverted and can be a little annoying. Zul is also a performer signed under Ramlee Studios though secretly he’s not that good at dancing. He causes more nuisance than sense to the group. His presence is disapproved by Nayli, the choreographer, who finds Zul’s antiques to be irritating at all times.
A dear friend to Hani. He supports Hani in whatever she does, no matter how ridiculous it may be. Keng Boon is Hani’s go-to person whenever she finds herself in rough waters or on cloud nine.
Nayli is infamously known as the hot-tempered and impatient lead choreographer of the dance group at Ramlee Studios. Due to her perfectionist nature to get their routine down to every step right, Nayli ensures that the team stick out for each other and give nothing but their best in every performance.
Huda is the assistant to Nayli. Her temperament is more relaxed as to that of Nayli’s and that makes her the “glue” to the big family of talents at Ramlee Studios. Huda is on neutral grounds on which specific form of performing arts is superior in today’s flavor but conflict arises when she upfrontly mentioned that the traditional cultural values Hani is seeking in this industry is a lost cause.
As a child, Faris has always been an admirer of Malaysia’s authentic traditional performing arts. Now with social influence and capital as the CEO of a multinational corporate company, he searches for new talents whom he refers to as “the great new generation of artists” to spearhead the noble cause of reviving and enriching Malaysia’s cultural identity.
