"We have to be awesome if we want to win!"
Two teams enter, one team leaves in the local HOT STEPS contest! The drama all begins when Kevin, total twerp and leader of a dance troupe full of rich kids, not only rents out the gym from under the opposing team but ALSO succeeds in stealing their hottest and most steppin’ dancer! When Kevin’s little sister Nancy tries out for his team but faces total ridicule, she decides the only way to get back at him is to join the opposing dance team of scrappy working-class kids led by the oh-so-sexy Rico. Who will win? Who will lose? Let the dance-off begin!!
“Okay, you've heard of the Olympics, right? And the Super Bowl? And the Moon Landing? And the Rapture? It's like all of those rolled into one, but with teams of no talent teens shamelessly shimmying around on a small stage in a low rent nightclub!” Cinemageddon
“There are some actors named 'Popsicle', 'Robot', 'Bic', 'Skeeter', 'Bam Bam', 'Little Cagney', and 'Deadrock', so you know this movie is legit AF. It's by far the worst dance movie…but it does have some hilarious delivery.” 1-star Letterboxd review
“A refreshing cocktail of soap opera plotting, awesome dance moves and questionable fashion choices.” 3-star Letterboxd review
