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

Totally Sweet!
10 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie, the story is empowering and encouraging to those that need someone to believe in them. It's important for girls to have an outlet for their creative energy. The girls have great spirit, drive, and work hard for what they want, and that can be a deadly combo. While the girls make some errors in judgment going behind the teacher's back, the teacher shouldn't have let her issues hold back her encouraging the girls to succeed! Once the coach and the girls started working together they made a great team. they show what hard work talent and determination can get you. I was very impressed with this film and it's one of my favorites
