Summary: This film is so enjoyable, it completely caught me by surprise. Not being interested in Ballroom dancing I thought it might be a bore, but I was captivated. A little over-long in some of the competition parts where you have to see each performance of each dance, but completely necessary plot-wise. Its a gem of a film, exploring not only these children learning the particular dances and their investment in the competition side of it, but also a glimpse into their lives and opinions about growing up in NYC. You'll find yourself rooting for the children to win their competitions, but also wishing you could see them ten years on, to see where they end up in life.
Rent it or buy it, its really fun to watch!
