"What a feeling!" All plucky welder Alex Owens (Jennifer Beals) really wants to do is dance. She finds some creative outlet dancing in a club at night but that's not going to cut it. What she really wants is a shot at trying out for a ballet company. Thanks to the support of her big-hearted instructor Hanna (Lilia Skala) and handsome hunk of a boss Nick (Michael Nouri) Alex gets her chance to take the ballet world by storm. It's the film that gave us iconic dance numbers, a pulsating soundtrack and fashion trends that last to this very day.
