A group of New York City elementary schoolkids take up ballroom dancing, and go on to compete in a city-wide competition.
While children are an easy target for humour, the filmmakers have a nose for the most hilarious ones, focusing on some charmingly eccentric little characters. The editing doesn’t make it easy to navigate the different classrooms, but the raw material is so strong this is thoroughly engaging with a genuinely suspenseful finale.
Cute, comical kids help make this ballroom dancing comp-romp a feelgood winner despite inexpert editing.
