Great movie if you're a dancer - inspiring.
5 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Again I watched this movie a long time ago when i was just thinking about starting dance classes. As with all movies with a heavy soundtrack from the 80's - it has aged. But I still love it and watch it at least once a year with my best friend, if not only just to remind us of high school. It was great watching Sarah, Helen and (to a lesser degree) Shannon's careers move on from here. It was a pity that Lee's career never surfaced again (unless we take into account "Models Inc".

If you have ever been an aspiring dancer, someone in their 30's reminiscing about the 80's or just someone that loves a stereotypical Hollywood climax - you will love this too.
