In November 1958, the American teenager Katey Miller moves with her parents and her younger sister to Havana. Her father is an executive of Ford expatriated to Cuba, and Katey is an excellent high school senior student that misses her friends. The family is lodged in a fancy hotel, where Katey accidentally meets the local teenage waiter Javier Suarez. Later she sees Javier dancing in a public square and they become friends, but he is fired from the hotel because her acquaintances have seen them together. Katey invites Javier to participate of a Latin Ballroom Contest in the local Palace club to help him to raise some money, and she secretly meets him in the La Rosa Negra nightclub for rehearsals. Later they fall in love for each other in times of revolution.Written by

In Dirty Dancing (1987), Johnny Castle told Neil about "some Cuban rhythms I've been working on with the staff kids", an accidental foreshadowing to the this prequel. See more »

[Katey comes back in the club. He walks up behind her]
[Katey turns around]
[She looks flustered. Her hair is a mess and her dress is ripped. He looks back and forth from the rip to her face]
Where is he?
[Tries to run after James, Katey holds him back]
He's gone. He's gone. It's okay, it's okay. I'm fine.
[Javier gives her a look]
My dad works for his dad. I just wanna forget about it.
Don't worry. I'll take you home. Come on.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I watched this movie. I was sure quite how it would fit with the Dirty Dancing title, but once I turned it on I was enraptured. I couldn't turn away and when it was over and watched it a second time.
I was uncertain at first what I would think because I'd heard it was a Sequel, I'd heard it was a Prequel and I'd heard it was a remake. But when I came out of watching it, I felt it was a movie in it's own right. If anything it was a Parallel. It present the same kind of feelings and emotions as the original Dirty Dancing. Other than that it was it's own movie.
Romola was fabulous and Diego was just so easy to watch. They had great chemistry that made the whole thing believable and realistic. I could watch them dance all day. And the music made me want to dance myself if I knew how.
