  • Has its moments, especially when lithe, beautiful bodies twirl themselves around the dance floor with appealing athleticism. But as a movie trying to deliver comedy, drama and romance, you might want to sit this one out. It's not terrible, mind you, but it just isn't very good. show more

  • Actress Amy Smart (Crank) has a knack for bringing a spark to mediocre movies, which she does again in this amiably dull dance drama. show more

  • This is pretty unremarkable stuff that has little to excite outside of its nicely done twirl-and-dip sections, choreographed here by West Coast swing dancing guru Robert Royston. show more

    It's that familiar adage where a woman falls in love with her dance instructor, and how could she not, when he is the sinfully sexy Tom Malloy! Malloy's character Jake, is a deaf dance instructor who meets up with a schoolteacher, Jessica, played by the adorable Amy Smart. The dance chemistry develops and is lingering on the edge of passion with every move they take. Not only is the dancing spectacular, Tom Malloy delivers a mental bolt in a story that is well writen, riveting and thought provoking. How does one communicate dance when hearing impaired? Music is an important element to a dancer. Music feeds the dancers soul to inspire thoughts and movement. The combination of music, movement and connection to a partner is inherent in the deepest part of our genetic code and as Malloy demonstrates, some of us are able to tap into that stream any way we can. Mr. Malloy has made us aware of the Theraputic and healing aspects of dance and the importance of dance to everyone, especially those of us with a handicap, physical or emotional such as hearing loss or a need we all have to 'connect' to one another. Malloy's careful craft of weaving the heartwarming stories of real people into the world of dance will leave you wanting more and if you haven't experienced dance in your life you will want to now. Tom Malloy has brought his gift of writing and combined it with the art of dance in a spell-binding way to make us all aware of Dances relevence to Mankind."
