With growing popularity in ballroom dancing nowadays with shows like Dancing with the Stars, it was interesting to get a glimpse into the competitive art. Baz Luhrman, one of my favorites, directed this film making great films like this one and Moulin Rouge. We often think that ballroom dancing is stuffy and associated with an older world, but we see the main character Scott tired of all traditional constraints of the sport and goes against the grain. Scott even goes against what he would normally do and picks a new partner based on his intuition. Which eventually ends up to be someone he likes romantically. Strictly Ballroom was great tale of how you can go against the grain and pave our own path. Sometime it is not about following the rules to a T but doing what your heart and mind like and when you do something that makes yourself happy others will follow.
