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

Cheesy
27 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie needs to serve crackers for as cheesy as it is! The entire plot is predictable and b-o-r-i-n-g.

Daphne needs some serious acting lessons - does she play the same character in everything she does? Always a surprised victim, duh! Actually ALL of the performers need to learn to act. I think the local elementary school would have done a more convincing job!

The dancing is good, but it can't save this made for TV movie.

Save yourself the time and trouble, sit down and watch the dust settle on the mantle for more entertainment! Because this will bore you to death! Y U C K!
