Judging from the theatrical trailers for MadHotBallroom, one might expect to encounter yet another kids-in-showbiz tale (common on TV) of obsessive coaches, unbalanced stage moms, and children engaged in uncomfortably unnatural activities.
MadHotBallroom (rated PG for some thematic elements) instead follows three fifth-grade ballroom dancing classes from three very different New York City public schools, leading up to a big, city-wide dance competition.
MadHotBallroom begins with a principal of one of the schools explaining that she doesn't particularly like "hard competition" and "winning" (almost as if they're dirty words), but has stuck with the ballroom dancing program because of the obvious rewards.
