Mad, Hot, Ballroom - The Movie!
August 19, 2013
Fraught with emotional peaks and valleys, epiphanies of self-discovery, and crushing disappointments, this incredible documentary film follows three teams of dedicated dancers as they endure months of practice preparing for the biggest ballroom dance competition of their lives. The nail biting, edge-of-your-seat scene in the final round of the competition left me breathless!
Now, imagine all that intensity, all that dedication… with fifth-grade dancers.
This must-see film stars eleven-year-old New York City public school kids blundering, gliding, and sashaying into the world of ballroom dance. The dance program, which began in 1994, is still running today and has been adopted by school districts all over the world.
Don’t miss Mad, Hot Ballroom. You and your whole family will laugh, cry, and probably cheer out loud!
