I liked it, but it was because of the melding of the kids dancing with the formal ballroom style that Antonio Banderas' character was trying to teach them.  Critics called the movie weak, but I like sappy movies where people try to turn their lives around. 
Mad Hot Ballroom was better, but that is a documentary about the real Dancing Classrooms.

I think the movie is good for what it is. Especially the part where Antonio (Mr. Dulane) explains to the board and parents the reasons to teach ballroom dancing to the teens. (respect, consideration, honesty, etc)

It is loosely based on the true story of Pierre Dulane and his bringing Ballroom Dancing into the public school systems. you can actually watch the whole movie on you tube.

Take The Lead and it is in english.

BTW I never trust critics.

But it is entertaining. Not quite Strictly Ballroom, not quite Shall We Dance, not quite Mad Hot Ballroom.

i like the movie in a way that it explains why ballroom dancing is good (like what ED said).

i like the best the tango part.  Grin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEwZIufmafo&feature=PlayList&p=4D71E5BE71A01D4B&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=1

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.

I liked the movie because it was interesting to watch people I know in it.  What I didn't like was the dumb part where all the kids take over the comp and do their own thing.  That pushed it into the realm of severe stupidity.  On the whole I didn't mind the movie and I bought the copy that Alan Armsby (MC in the movie) donated and signed at the Dancesport for Charities.

Has anyone had any interaction with Dancing Classrooms?  I know M. Dulaine was experimenting with Toronto last year.

I had a small one in HI, and Nathalie Gomez currently runs a fairly successful one in Louisiana.

The most beautiful part of the dance is often found in between the steps... and in the movement within the stillness.
