Antonio Banderas teaches ballroom dancing to the rejects at a New York inner-city high school in director Liz Friedlanders first film, which was inspired by a true story. Displeased by the ill-mannered street thugs and sassy students, Banderas Pierre Dulaine arrives in a suit and tie on his 10-speed to volunteer to teach the rumba and tango. At first, the too-cool-for-dancing school detainees laugh at the twinkle-toes therapy, but are soon fascinated and inspired by the accented philosophies and fast steps of their unlikely teacher. Soon, the teens are exhibiting high morals, overcoming their troubled home lives and competing in a ballroom dance-off where theyve infused the fox trot with hip-hop free-styling intensity. The choreography and music are enough to hold viewers attention, but its truly Banderas charm and screen presence that take the lead.
