I watched this last night with my ten-year old daughter and she can't stop talking about it. A "must see" for any child, or adult, who has a love of dance and a passion for the arts. The documentary made us laugh, cry, and get up and do some of our own moves! We were clapping at the outcome and conclusion. It is entertaining, but also sparks some good conversation about the different ways children live and the message that no matter what obstacles you face, with hardwork, passion and determination you can be successful.

This documentary is one of the best I've seen in a long time. I is about inner city young people who earn extra credit learning to dance. And dance they do! The film will take you from clumsy beginning to spectacular end with other schools competing for the coveted trophy. You find yourself cheering for your favorite group. The most interesting thing was how everyone of the youngsters changed. They became more confident and and studious in their other classes. You must see this film, it will lift your spirits and brighten your day.

This movie is simply wonderful. It is inspirational, moving, funny, and it certainly will make you want to dance! The music is great, the kids are fun to watch and their spirit is infectious. Anyone who works with kids (teachers especially) ought to see this movie. These kids in NY Public Schools finally found motivation in something and for some of them, may help to turn their lives around and stay on the right path. This is such a heartfelt movie and you will find yourself rooting for the kids as they make their way into competition. Great great movie, I recommend it to everyone!
