A heartbreak around every turn

I'll be honest. I was a professional dancer many decades ago so I am all to aware of how brutal and heartbreaking nature of the business.

But this thing knocked the wind out of me repeatedly.

A heart warming meeting? Kick to the soul. A child in a nationally regarded dance company?


I've always loved Debbie Allen and admired her work.

After this I want go have her canonized, NOW.

And I doubt she'd agree, which makes this all the more reasonable.

If you missed this, you either watched an entirely different movie than I did, or you didn't actually watch the movie at all and made your evaluation based on hearsay or you rubber stamped an analysis/rating so you fit into your group.

I dare you to watch the movie with the sound on. And listen. And grieve that we still live in this United(?) States.

Simply Magnificent

I positively enjoy this documentary due to revealing the aspects of the grind it takes to work with children to put on a large production that is the key fundraiser for a non profit organization. The viewer is also treated to snapshots of the obstacles students and parents encounter. It is a bonus is hearing Ms. Allen share part of her story regarding key points at the start of her training and career. The balance between the students and the adults is delightful. I could not help but applaud the energy, drive, and grit Ms. Allen instills into her students to understand that "everyday is a rehearsal for (their) life.
