This unexpected hit with art audiences is a charming documentary which follows many adorable New York City public school children as they prepare for a citywide ballroom dancing competition. You will find yourself rooting for the children from PS 115, a predominately Dominican elementary school in upper Manhattan, when they take the stage. In between dances, they expound on their crushes, self-respect, drug abuse, marriage and poverty. They will impress you with their articulate descriptions, their humor and their first rate dancing
