This film is about an "elite" dance team of middle school age to high school age girls. It's a documentary that follows them through a single year, with a lot of focus on the leader of the dance school, Jenn.
I normally thoroughly enjoy dance movies, mostly the fictional variety, but also documentaries. However, I found this one only mediocre for a few reasons. First, I didn't really get a sense that these were truly elite dancers. Good, yes, but elite? No. Second, I didn't really feel I got to know any of the individual dancers well. There were one-on-one interviews with about four of the dancers but they just seemed a bit superficial. Third, the big conflict in the movie, the poor Christmas recital, seemed a bit forced. The drama just wasn't there.
If you're into dance, it's not a bad film, and you probably won't regret watching it, but you won't remember it for long. If you're not into dance, definitely skip it!
My youngest daughter and I love this movie so much. It's so inspiring and interesting to be taken into these dancers' lives and see what really goes on behind the scenes. My daughter has started dancing because of this movie!!
