Center Stage

Three words: red pointe shoes. Center Stage is a lot of things: nostalgic, dramatic, corny, romantic — and oh yes, amazing. The film stars mostly professional dancers, with the exception of a few main characters who had doubles for the tougher scenes. It follows Jodie Sawyer — a fresh-faced dancer with marginal turnout and bad feet — as she discovers where she belongs in the dancing world, even if it isn't where she always dreamed it would be. The final dance scenes of the movie (enter red pointe shoes here) are the perfect combination of choreography created for both film and dance, complete with a fusion of classical ballet music and moves and modern pop culture.
