Common Sense Media: Best Back-to-School Movies

8 of 27

'Mad Hot Ballroom' (2005)

Ages: 8+

Synopsis: Dance documentary hits all the right beats.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this documentary tracks students from three NYC public schools as they prepare for an annual citywide ballroom dancing competition. Parents need to know that some of the 11- and 12-year-old interviewees discuss the difficulties in their lives and neighborhoods, including absent parents, drug dealers, and street violence. That said, the children handle these subjects with poise and remarkable self-awareness. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Paramount Vintage)
