On her first day at an all-girls Catholic High School in Chicago, shy and reserved Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) meets the wild and wacky Lynne Sands (Helen Hunt). Even though her oppressive dad, Col. Glenn (Ed Lauter), won't let her go, Lynne talks her into sneaking out to try out for a spot on the beloved show Dance TV. Janey wows the judges with her gymnastic ability and makes first cuts, conveniently assigned to a cute dance partner: blue-collar bad boy Jeff Malene (Lee H. Montgomery). They compete against the bratty rich girl Natalie Sands (Holly Gagnier), who sabotages them because she wants Jeff and the contest for herself. Janey and Lynne get revenge by inviting punks and street kids to crash her debutante ball. Natalie then resorts to making her wealthy industrialist dad, J.P. Sands (Morgan Woodward), threaten Jeff; If he doesn't let Natalie win, his dad (Biff Yeager) could lose his job at the factory. It all leads up to the live television broadcast of the Dance TV contest, right when Janey's dad races to the studio to stop her. Also starring Shannen Doherty as Jeff's little sister, Maggie.

I have loved this movie from the first time I saw it! I have already gone through two copies, and would like to purchase the DVD! Full of great songs and an EXCELLENT CAST!!! If I had ten thumbs, they would be up!
One of the best dance movies I have ever watched. Sarah Jessica and Helen are wonderful in this. WHY didn't it get more recognition than it did? Watched it with my girls when they were young and now I enjoy it with my granddaughter. SOME FUN!!!
This movie has it all..great cast..great music. It is perfect for those who didn't get a chance to watch Sara Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt before they made it big. Too bad this movie didn't get the attention it deserved!
I am English and would like to purchase this film let someone borrow it and never returned - cannot purchase it in England would pay for it to come from America???
If you are looking for movies to watch with your kids, your search is over! This movie has competition, dance, fun, and caring parents. No cursing, no sex, no violence(minus one punch in a dance club). This is the GREATEST dance movie ever!
