"Take The Lead"

Apparently, somewhat removed from the reality, but still a good movie. The idea and visuals of combining street dance and ballroom (last scene, etc.) are impressive (and fun). The dancing of Katya Virshilas as Morgan, the blond, snooty, advanced student can’t be denied (see trailer). The theme of overcoming life’s challenges, particularly in an urban jungle, is always heart touching.

“Pierre Dulaine (born 23 April 1944)[2] is a dance instructor and dancer. He invented the Dulaine method of teaching dance. He also founded Dancing Classrooms, a social and emotional development program for 5th grade children that uses ballroom dancing as a vehicle to change the lives of the children and their families.

“Notably, his early works with children was fictionalized in the film Take the Lead, starring Antonio Banderas as Pierre Dulaine.

'In 1994 Dulaine founded the Dancing Classrooms program for the New York City Department of Education. He also invented the "Dulaine Method" to encourage children to dance together.”
