Witness the transformation of New York City 5th graders fro 3 public schools as they change from awkward, shy, and reluctant participants in a public school ballroom dance program to become highly motivated "ladies and gentlemen" in preparing for the citywide championship trophy.
This documentary captures the refreshing innocence of the kids (many from high poverty districts) as they share personal feelings and insights on life in-between their struggles with the foxtrot, tango, merengue, rumba and swing.
One of those rare movies that will make you laugh and cry at the same time, and will inspire you to wish there were more such programs in our schools.
Rated PG, 105 min. DVD
