You need to dance for yourself, not for anybody else.
What's important is taking part in the sport and not the winning of the sport. It's important to enjoy the journey, getting there.
If it was an elective, you'd get twenty girls and three boys doing ballroom dancing. Girls want to dance, boys don't. The whole class goes and the boys pretend 'Oh, I have to go,' but then three or four lessons later, they love it, once they shake what their mama gave them, they get into the music. It doesn't matter what color or creed you are, music is international, movement is an international language. Everybody loves to shake it.
The movie picks up at my experiences at the second, third and fourth schools. This is where I had principals tell me [ballroom dancing] was too elitist and ask where will these kids ever use it. They didn't see what I saw.
If you put a piece of music on and give them a hint of what the character is, they can just take it and develop it from there for themselves. Steps are cheap.
It's the joy that's priceless.
