You are now carrying my child. It is the mystery of the dance.

28/47 Amanda Jones Maybe it's the dancing that made the normally offensive Banderas seem downright charismatic.

Digg Button  
Dianne Houston wrote this screenplay that is inspired by the true story of international ballroom dancer Pierre Dulane. The movie will center on a former professional dancer who volunteers to teach dance in the public school system of New York City. Since his focus is ballroom, his methods naturally are in conflict with the hip-hop instincts of the students. Rather than give up on them, he joins forces with the students, mentoring them as together they create a completely new style of dance.

Antonio Banderas, who was nominated for a Tony Award for his work in Nine the Musical, will star as the dance teacher, and Alfre Woodard will portray the principal of the school. Director Liz Friedlander makes her feature film debut. She has previously helmed music videos for such artists as Blink 182, Dido, REM and U2. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
