Storyline

This was going to be the first year that Marshal Middle School was not going to have a dance team. All that changes when the new Biology teacher, Ms. Bartlett, agrees to be the coach. Now the girls need to prove that they are ready to compete and are able to win; not only to themselves, but to their parents and coach. Using the chant "si, se puede" or "yes, I can" the Dance team builds their confidence to perform. Written by Anonymous

Perfect for tweens
10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie sends home many messages that may seem tired to some, but as a parent I always appreciate it when we see something on TV that allows me to start up a conversation with my kids about these issues.

My oldest daughter is a competitive gymnast and we saw this movie for the first time on the Disney Channel about a week before her first competition. This movie was both entertaining and a great way to help her understand the difference between being "the best" and "her best." Seeing the characters work hard to reach their goal - while still having fun - really helped her get in the right frame of mind to compete. My middle daughter is a dancer and when we watched it most recently, she enjoyed it from that view as well.

When my girls see this movie advertised, they will do whatever I ask them to do to ensure they can watch the whole thing!
