Description: If they really got what it takes, it's goingito take everything they got. Seven classes a day and a hot lunch. That's what New York City High School for the Performing Arts guarantees.

"Alan Parker’s body-electrifying tale of High School of Performing Arts students trying to hit it big makes prime use of Gotham venues, from a thrillingly turbulent Times Square to the now-defunct 8th Street Playhouse’s midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.—Keith Uhlich"

20 Films about... Dance (20 movies items)

"Not just a dance film, as it presents a group of adolescent dancers, singers, and dreamers during their high school years at a prestigious art school in New York. The film spawned a tv series, and a 2009 remake directed by Kevin Tancharoen. "

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Director Alan Parker wanted a scene that showed Doris overcoming her fear and becoming an actress. He heard of the audience participation at the local screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and went to check it out. He loved it so much that he not only decided to use it in the film, he had many of the "cast" from the local screenings appear in the film, as the people doing the time-warp on stage when Doris runs up and joins them. Original title for the movie was to be "Hot Lunch," but bec"

" -Fame needs no introduction. This was my third time of watching it and it'd been ten years since I last saw it. This time around I was sympathizing with the awkward and gay Montgomery and... Leroy. His dancing during the audition still makes my eyes bulge. That guy (played by Gene Anthony Ray) was amazing."
