|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until December 10, 2019

Mad Hot Ballroom
Sunshine Coast Film Society

U.S. 2005, 105 min., doc/music
Director: Marilyn Agrelo

Join us for some pre-Christmas magic: a charming and inspiring documentary that profiles several elementary classes from New York’s inner-city schools as they compete in a city-wide ballroom dancing competition. As much about life in general as about dancing, a central theme is the growth and maturation shown by the eleven-year-olds from their first awkward steps in rumba, swing, and tango classes through to confidence and enthusiasm in the championship rounds. The filmmakers avoid narration, choosing to show, not tell, and the result is a heartwarming and endearing film.
