Strictly Ballroom

(out of 5)


A young ballroom dance champion () finds himself being scorned by his superiors for creating his own steps when preparing for the upcoming, all-important Pan-Pacific competition. Finding himself without a partner, he plucks a total beginner () from his parents’ studio classes and the two of them prepare to do their own thing at the final showdown. On the surface it seems like silly fluff, but it’s actually a piercing examination of the need to strike your individual chord in a world full of people who are trying so hard to assimilate with each other. The music and dancing is thrilling, the costumes eye-popping, and the performances excellent.
