"Exhilarating and enormously entertaining." -- Jeffrey Lyons, NBC
Full of electrifying energy, this exciting and inspirational story lights up the screen with its raw spirit and sizzling dance moves. Antonio Banderas stars as ballroom dance instructor Pierre Dulaine, hired by an inner city high school principal (Alfre Woodard) to supervise detention for the school's most troubled students. The kids, full of anger and attitude, want nothing to do with Pierre and his classical moves. Nut when he takes a genuine interest in their hip-hop dancing - and the kids themselves - a new style of dancing is born that takes the students all the way to a national competition... and to finally believing in themselves.
