Storyline

Deborah Matthews' divorce from her husband Jason Matthews has just been finalized. She filed for divorce because she believed he was cheating on her. Jason has since moved away to work on an often communication inaccessible research ship. That fact and the divorce itself does not sit well with their sixteen year old daughter, aspiring ballerina Erika Matthews, who blames her mother for her parent's martial problems due to her being a workaholic and for her not forgiving Jason for the indiscretion, which he vehemently denies. To make matters worse, Erika's long time ballet coach, Leonard Capas, has just quit before her important audition into the Ballet America summer program. Mr. Capas' resignation was solely by a cryptic letter with no in-person good-bye to staff or the students. Luckily, the ballet school is able to fill immediately Mr. Capas' job by a young man named Reed Halton, who believes he can help Erika prepare for her audition. Reed has been a widower now for eighteen ... Written by Huggo

terrible dancing
13 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I started watching this movie and i had to turn it off. I'm a dancer and the second i saw her routine it made me sick they should at least get a actress who can dance to play a ballerina.Her dancing was insulting couldn't believe that the directors didn't realize that her toes weren't pointed or that her extensions were horrible.the worst part is that the actress was suppose to be a prima ballerina and it just wasn't even believable.it's especially ba d if a girl who want to dance watches it n thinks that that is what it would look like. And to add on to it the actors couldn't act it was like watching a bad school play i couldn't believe that they would even have it on TV or that anyone would ever watch it.
