Okay, with positive messages.

This movie is okay. There are positive messages, an all that. Really it seemed like it wasjust used as a way to populurize the Youth American Grand Prix. Magor consummarizm. The girls and boys who preform are very good in the mechainical aspect of ballet, but I didn't seee alot of stage presence or real artistry coming from any of them. It's a fun film to see, but I really wonder what Gelsey Kirkland would have to say if she saw it.

Very Good!

As a mom to a dancer (dancing for 7 years), this was a great documentary. We watched it together and while my daughter is in the neighborhood dance studio that doesn't compete, it was fantastic to learn about the dedication and commitment it takes to go to much higher levels. The only reason I highlighted "consumerism" is because there are references to just how very expensive it is for dance costumes, lessons, etc. and it IS very pricey to dance and perform on that level.
