Pauline: [Angrily marches into Esther's shop and slams the door] You got it all, huh? You just HAD to have him, too?
Esther: [Quietly] You want to talk about this another time?
Pauline: [Knocking several materials off of Esther's counter] No, I don't want to talk about it another TIME! You couldn't have cared nothing about him, so why?
Esther: [Sharply] I DON'T think you want to talk about this now...

Dancing with Feelings
2 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I thought this was a great movie - I was a dancer in my earlier years and this movie brought back memories. This movie should be seen more often for our young children (black and white) to know how beautiful and enjoyable dancing can be. Also, this movie can teach you to survive and what friendship is about. This movie should also be used by dance instructors for educational purposes for their students.

The dance choreography for this movie was just fantastic. I can not dance like that anymore but seeing this movie made me get up and move around alittle with joy. This movie also would be great to show to senior citizens - I know it would bring back some memories for them especially the ones that are 70 plus. My mom would enjoy it - she was a swinger - she is now 78 years old. God is Blessing her.

I am hoping that this movie will be shown again soon on lifetime or whatever cable or TV channel that will show it.
