MAD HOT BALLROOM
Director Marilyn Agrelo reveals the personalities of the young students whose lives are enriched by their contact with each other and their teachers through ballroom dance. The narrative (written by Amy Sewell) assembles toward its built-in trophy award climax with dance teams performing five dances: the Fox Trot, Swing, Rumba, Tango and Meringue.
Charming, poignant, and festive "Mad Hot Ballroom" is an inspirational documentary that shows the power of dance to invigorate self-esteem and ambition in young hearts.
