Quotes

Paul Rothstein: [while Alice scrubs the floors] So, where is everybody?
Alice: [rises from the floor and moves to the sink] Your mother went shopping.
Paul Rothstein: [moves forward, wrapping his arms around Alice's waist] Alone at last.
Alice: [recoiling from his touch] Boy, quit! And watch where you're walking. I just scrubbed this.
Paul Rothstein: Alice, I like you. I really like you.
Alice: What would your mother do if she was on the other side of that door listening? Probably die. I don't know why you keep bothering me.
Paul Rothstein: Because I like you. And it doesn't matter...

Dancing with Feelings
2 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a great movie - I was a dancer in my earlier years and this movie brought back memories. This movie should be seen more often for our young children (black and white) to know how beautiful and enjoyable dancing can be. Also, this movie can teach you to survive and what friendship is about. This movie should also be used by dance instructors for educational purposes for their students.

The dance choreography for this movie was just fantastic. I can not dance like that anymore but seeing this movie made me get up and move around alittle with joy. This movie also would be great to show to senior citizens - I know it would bring back some memories for them especially the ones that are 70 plus. My mom would enjoy it - she was a swinger - she is now 78 years old. God is Blessing her.

I am hoping that this movie will be shown again soon on lifetime or whatever cable or TV channel that will show it.
