Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Vibrant and supremely gifted, they are a tight-knit group of young dance students who devote themselves to their art, sacrificing ordinary pleasures of life to train with the rigor of Olympic athletes. While experiencing the normal joys and sorrows, loves and conflicts of youth, they vie for a place in an ultra-selective professional dance company.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - A predictable drama about ballet dancers triumphing over adversity. Those who have gone through the rigors of ballet school may appreciate what the film has to offer. Most others will be bored, especially those who aren't thrilled by the thought of sitting through 30 minutes of ballet sequences.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
Center Stage proves that all the sports movie cliches can be as successfully applied to ballet as to baseball, basketball, football, boxing, ice skating, skateboarding, karate, etc. With a plot that is constructed entirely out of formula situations and familiar plot elements, Center Stage feels like a rerun of Flashdance grafted onto The Cutting Edge. The only thing that differentiates this movie from anything to come before it is the meticulous attention to detail when it comes to the dance sequences, which are impeccably choreographed and presented in their entirety, with minimal cut-aways and other camera tricks. Of course, for those viewers who are hopelessly bored by ballet (a group which includes a majority of men and a percentage of women), this will be seen as a negative characteristic used only to pad out the running time (which, without these sequences, would have been a half-hour shorter).
