Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

STREETDANCE is better than you might expect. The characters are largely likable, the dance moves and music keep the pace moving fairly well, and Charlotte Rampling as ballet studio owner Helena is an acting power-up. No, these characters aren't particularly well-developed, but the moves are fun, and the overall message, while formulaic and predictable, is pleasant enough: The idea that two styles of dance from entirely different cultures and classes could merge to form a style that improves upon both makes for a satisfying watch.

The film is most likely to hold the attention spans of kids who already are invested in dance, but parents should watch for a few scenes that get a little mature on the romance front.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
