"Mad Hot Ballroom" is an inspiring look inside the lives on New York City school kids on a journey into the world of ballroom dancing, an unexpected arena where they discover new frontiers about attitude, movement, style and commitment. Told from the candid, sometimes hilarious perspective of the boys and girls themselves, the picture chronicles their transformation from typical urban kids to "ladies and gentlemen", as their school team strives towards a final citywide competition. Providing unique insight into the incredible cultural diversity that is truly the soul of New York City, first time feature filmmakers Marilyn Agrelo and Amy Sewell profile eleven-year-olds from three public elementary schools. Shooting in neighborhoods, classrooms, and in the fifth-graders' homes, the filmmakers show all the contradictions of this dynamic and intriguing age, growing pressure to become a "cool" teenager vies with rambunctious childlike innocence.
