Take the Lead

Take the Lead

The best part about this movie is that it is based on the life of a real man who did manage to take ballroom into an inner city classroom and turn it into a full-fledged, permanent program. With Antonio Banderas playing the part of the gifted and compassionate teacher and Alfre Woodard that of the cynical school principal, this a powerful and provocative film as much about life as it is about dance.
