In this energetic and faithful re-make of the classic 1987 musical, college boy Ren McCormack gets an almighty shock when he moves from Boston to the quiet Southern American town of Bomont. He discovers a community where public dancing has become an illegal offence. An exceptional dancer who lives to move, Ren decides to rebel against the strict rule put in place after a party-fueled accident killed five local teenagers. Standing in his way is the unyielding Reverend Moore, whose disgust at the sudden protests is doubled when his daughter Ariel starts dancing to Ren’s beat. This is a fun reboot that skillfully intertwines the much-loved original soundtrack with electrifying modern choreography. Most importantly, it retains the most important aspect of its predecessor – a toe-tapping feel-good factor.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
