Take the Lead, a dramatised retread of the hit documentary Mad Hot Ballroom, is so awful it defies describing.

A scattering of dance sequences that fuse hip-hop and classical beats provide a few shots of energy, but Take The Lead otherwise plods through the motions.

While their transformation is predictable, it's quietly enjoyable, and the teen angle opens the door to romance and gritty gang-war subplots.
