Helen Zaltzman (The Allusionist, Answer Me This! and Veronica Mars Investigations) and Helen O’Hara (Empire Podcast and magazine) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Helen Z’s choice Center Stage. Center Stage 2000 teen drama about a group of young dancers from different backgrounds that join a prestigious (fictional) ballet school in New York City. Directed by Nicholas (Madness of King George) Hytner and stars a mix of actors and dancers. Out of the main characters who are dancers, four are professional ballet dancers (Amanda Schull (her debut) Ethan Stiefel, Sascha Radetsky, and Julie Kent), one is a professional figure skater (Ilia Kulik), one had ballet training (Zoe Saldana in her debut also), and two were actors with no ballet training (Susan May Pratt and Shakiem Evans). Body doubles were used for many of the major dance sequences. Peter Gallagher also stars as the company director and choreographer. Center Stage is essentially a high school drama set in a ballet school. Nothing is ambiguous and if you missed anything then it is all summarised - through dance - in the dance finale. The brutal side of ballet - no pizza and bad feet, Mandy Moore and bland boyfriends feature heavily - if that’s your thing then you’ll love it.  

Scores 

[supsystic-tables id=214] If it’s not then you’ll probably not enjoy it - this caveat was heavily reflected in the scores with an average of three for recommendability which ends up giving an overall score of 3.34.
