The Portorican dance instructor, handsome primary school teacher Nicholas Dominguez, has just dumped his haughty competition dance partner Cristina and accepted her arrogant dare he couldn't train another girl.

Worthy addition to Dance movie genre
26 January 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

For anyone who likes dance movies such as DIRTY DANCING, STRICTLY BALLROOM, and SAVE THE LAST DANCE this one is a worthy addition to that genre. Like those films, this one shares the standard plot of romantic leads from different backgrounds overcoming obstacles with comic relief from their sidekicks and lots of enjoyable music and dancing. Once again we have the awkward heroine who faces antagonism but blossoms while taking dance lessons from a hunky homeboy. Kamar De Los Reyes and Annabeth Gish were very appealing as sensitive soulmates. I have two complaints though- it was unbelievable to me that she would even consider marrying the numbskull fiance after connecting with Nick and it didn't make sense that her friends and mother would object to Nick simply because he was Hispanic- when he was a cultured college educated school teacher and even Catholic like she was. Movie writers seem to keep wanting to perpetuate cultural biases by presenting conflicts intended to show that there is something shocking about people of different ethnic backgrounds having relationships when in the real world it has become quite commonplace and accepted-at least in MY world.
