directed by Marilyn Agrelo, 2005 / US / 105′

Documentary filmmaker Marilyn Agrelo chronicles the lives of several New York City schoolchildren as they get ready for a dancing competition sponsored by the nonprofit group American Ballroom Theater. As the finals of the competition near, the students — ranging in age from 10 to 11 and coming from both poor and affluent neighborhoods — make their transformation from reticent novices to confident contestants versed in the Latin styles of foxtrot, merengue and rumba.
