Once promising ballerina Maria Schmidt (a sturdy and moving portrayal by the stunning Hyapatia Lee) runs a prestigious dance school with her crippled and impotent husband Carl (a fine performance by Paul Thomas). Since Carl isn't capable of satisfying Maria's sexual needs, Maria has no choice but to seek carnal fulfillment from her students.
Director Bob Chinn, working from a thoughtful script by Bud and Hyapatia Lee, handles the absorbing premise with commendable care and sensitivity while still delivering the sizzling goods. Moreover, this film serves as an ideal showcase for Hyapatia Lee both as an actress and a simply magnificent physical beauty: Hyapatia brings a touching pathos top her part, performs her sex scenes with scorching erotic aplomb (a lively threeway between her, Thomas, and fetching brunette Shanna McCullough rates as the definite steamy highlight), and even busts some sweet dance moves (she looks like a million bucks in a leotard, too). Juraj's funky-throbbing score hits the right-on gnarly spot. Jack Remy's sunny cinematography provides a nice sparkling look. A worthwhile hardcore movie.
