Quotes

Gene Kelly: Dancing on film is nearing its 100th anniversary - and the innovations through the years have been remarkable. Now, its no secret, dance follows music - and, as music changes, dance changes with it. The music of the 80s has had a profound influence on movie dancing - and the changes we've seen continue to hold an exciting promise for the future.

Very Enjoyable and Entertaining!!
3 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

A wonderful documentary about dance and some of the greatest dance film stars ever. Ive recently seen it and enjoyed it!But must say that I thought the dancing from the 70's and 80's wasn't a 'spectacular' as the dance numbers from the 30's and 40's. I rate it a 8/10 stars. ********
