Center Stage: On Pointe :- Watch Center Stage: On Pointe on Youtube on Fire, Was there a middle or high school dance recital that didn’t contain some reference to that early 00s time capsule of a teen drama? Seems unlikely. I can vividly remember the bright blue halter top from the costumes of our student choreography project that hoisted several segments straight from the film. Even hearing Jamiroquai now sends me back to that place hiding out in the studio of our new performing arts wing, practicing pirouettes in what felt like a light-filled clubhouse amidst the drudgery of high school. And re-watching the original, I get the same emotions. I’m intimidated by how chic Kathleen (Julie Kent) still is in what looks like a Celine pantsuit. I feel for Eva (Zoe Saldana, in what I still think is one of her best roles), who pretends like she doesn’t care. I cry for Emily’s mom, who after her daughter is kicked out of the program for gaining too much weight, says “I want you girls to promise me you won’t let anyone make you feel bad about yourself.” Mothers may recognize Peter Gallagher, back again as Jonathan Reeves, the director of the aging ABA Ballet, but they aren’t the intended audience. Reeves and protege Cooper (Ethan Stiefel) are confronted with the reality that while Misty Copeland’s YouTube videos are getting millions of views, their company is not selling tickets. Cue the quest for a new young star with a heart of gold and an understanding of what the kids like these days.
