  1. A documentary experience to savor. Warm, funny and very difficult to resist, this engaging film combines the charm of "Spellbound" with the kinetic energy of "Strictly Ballroom" in a way that will make you want to laugh, cry and do a little dancing yourself, maybe all at the same time.
  2. This winning documentary about fifth-graders who learn ballroom dancing is one of those movies that make the world a brighter place.

    Isn't just heartwarming and inspiring, it's a remarkable look at a group of children whose most noteworthy trait is that they are ordinary.
  4. These kids may be too small for sports and may not be headed to college on academic scholarships. But for once, they've proven to the world and to themselves that they matter.
  5. 83
    You nevertheless can't help but be swept up in the kids' enthusiasms and aspirations and gobs of energy.
