An agreeable variation on the underdog theme, this locally produced video feature is an ideal vehicle for powerhouse dancer Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, the first female artist to be featured in Savion Glover's Broadway show Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk. As a young girl the heroine sees her father drop dead onstage during a performance; later she gives up on tap and enrolls in beauty school to appease her resentful mother, a gambling addict in denial. Martin Dumas III, artistic codirector of M.A.D.D. Rhythms, plays the smitten dancer who coaxes her back into the limelight. Stacie E. Hawkins produced and directed her own script. 87 min.
