At one point, Nisa calls the villain "matador". It is intended as an insult. But "matador" is a bullfighting term. What Nisa really means to say is "asesino" (murderer). See more »

Post-production was severely rushed to meet its intended March 1990 release date. Two months later, a director's cut was given a limited release in New York City, but this version has never been released on home video (at least in the U.S.). See more »
I feel ashamed of being Brazilian after watching this movie!
This is a ridiculous film! Not only is there no good dancing , as the title suggests, and moronic dialog, but the writers obviously did not research Brazilian culture whatsoever before making this crappy movie. I'm Brazilian, born and raised, and believe me on this one, there are NO princesses there. Not even anything close! It makes me angry that this movie portrays my country and culture so wrong. Asides from that, the movie makes me laugh because everything is so exaggerated and corny!
