Center Stage [DVD] [2000]

The ballet school drama Center Stage comes to DVD with a surprising amount of features, including a widescreen, anamorphic transfer, Dolby Digital 5.1 and Surround Audio, and a commentary by director Nicholas Hytner. A "making of" featurette and extended dance sequences emphasize the film's attention to choreography and ballet fundamentals, while the isolated music score and deleted scenes provide more insight into the creative processes behind Center Stage. Theatrical trailers, production notes, cast and crew biographies, and the video for Mandy Moore's "I Wanna Be With You" complete this fairly substantial and entertaining disc.

Synopsis


Center Stage
In this emotional drama, a team of young dancers are competing for places in a prestigious dance troupe. The dancers have to deal with the ups and downs of trying to find their place in the world, even as their profession also places an enormous physical and psychological challenge before them. They train with the rigor of championship athletes, and like most aspiring athletes, they know that only a tiny number of them will achieve the goal they've set for themselves. Director Nicholas Hytner) cast young dancers and athletes as his aspiring terpsichoreans, including Ilia Kulik, an Olympic gold medalist in figure skating; the cast also includes Peter Gallagher as the leader of the dance troupe, Susan May Pratt, Amanda Schull, Eion Bailey, Debra Monk, and Sascha Radetsky. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This is a great inspirational movie for dancers. It really brings the spirit of dancing to life. at least it does for me. Even though the movie is 10 years old and I have seen it several times, I never get tired of watching it.

    I love this movie for the dancing and the music. I watch just parts of it some time because I love the dancing and music. The plot isn't amazing, but the dancing and music combo make up for it.

    I love this movie and always will. The dancing is beautiful! It has a simple plot and predictability to it but still endearing, like Breakfast Club for the dancing world.

    This has always been one of my favorite dance movies. I love the opening scene of breaking in pointe shoes and all of the choreography.
