Decent AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL with cute little boy ballerina

6/10

This isn't one of those Shocking AFTERSCHOOL SPECIALS with a taboo subject matter. It's about a Country boy who is constantly praised for being such a great basketball player. What most people don't know is that aside from playing basketball on the school team he also takes ballet classes a few towns over. He's in a class with his sister. He doesn't really understand why his father is okay with his sister being a ballerina and not fine with him doing it. There's a new cute girl in class thats always smiling at him. One day during rehearsals for a local production of NUTCRACKER SUITE they run into each other. At school a few days later she mentions the ballet and then his best friend at school catches wise to his "little secret" and starts giving him the brush-off. Due to an article in the local newspaper the whole school finds out and labels him a "pansy". Will he dance or will he opt out of THE NUTCRACKER? Seeing that it's an AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL I'm sure you can guess how it will end. The little boy in this was very cute. I checked his IMDb page and was surprised to see this was the only thing he ever acted in. Oh well. Maybe he's somewhere out there dancing right now!
