Storyline

Blue-collar worker Vince stumbles into a dance school, where he quickly becomes entranced by the music. Miss McKenzie, the school's manager and former owner, is about to throw him out on his ear when Moon, the school's rebellious new jazz instructor, vouches for him. Although the school's new owner has insisted on bringing in Moon as a teacher, Miss McKenzie absolutely hates him and the influence of his mordern music, and will stop at nothing to see him (and Vince) thrown out for good.

Acting may not be brilliant but the dancing is.
7 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Actually, this is good viewing. The script goes a bit off the rails, and the acting isn't brilliant (although there are a couple of good actors in it), but its primarily a dance film, and anyone who loves dance should see this. The dance talent is 10 out of 10, and some of the guys are gorgeous!! On the dancing side of things, a lot of work has been put into this film by the dancers themselves. Just a shame they haven't been more successful. If you've seen Salsa or Lambada and thought it was your sort of thing, then this film is worth watching. Not many of the cast are household names (well, practically none if I'm honest!!) but they deserve more recognition; Steve La Chance was impressive. The only totally wooden actress in my opinion was the middle aged headmistress of the school, with the curly hair. So mundane, I cant even remember her real name. God knows what casting were thinking of; she lets the whole film down.
