The Art School was always their dream. They want to dance, they want to sing, to play music, to act but above all they want to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy. Leroy, Danny, Jesse, Chris, Coco and all the others try hard because they know that they've got a long way to go till they reach fame and riches. Fame costs and here (the Art School) is where they start paying for it. Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <>

Did You Know?


Debbie Allen first appeared as the dance teacher Lydia in Fame (1980), but was only shown judging auditions at the beginning of the movie. She had two lines: commenting that Leroy didn't have a registration form, and calling his dancing "wicked!!" She is still identified as Lydia in the film's closing credits. See more »

Just as good as I remembered it to be
27 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I had been waiting anxiously for Fame to be released on DVD because it was one of my favorite shows growing up.

My 15 yr old daughter & I just finished watching the last episode, and now she too is hooked. Every episode is full of great dancing, fun music and a moral or two thrown in. The characters are so engaging. My daughter loves Leroy as much as I used too.

I hope they'll release the remaining seasons so that I can have the full set to watch again. I would love to have the music from the show on CD as well.

This was as terrific as I'd remembered! :)
