Cocolonia's Mother: Aaaaaaaa! What kind of music is this? It sounds like murder and drugs!
Cocolonia: It's hip hop.
Cocolonia's Mother: Hips should never be hopped! Not under my roofs! You're grounded to the house for the entire weekend. And Cocolonia, remember, today, I'm hosting the Censorship Fund-raiser. So please wear something opulent.

Not so freaky dancefilm
12 July 2012 | by flint-421-512233See all my reviews

Freak Dance is a musical for people who enjoy dancing but can not stand stupid danceflicks. With a look on the IMDb rating those people are just a minority, but that should not keep you you from watching a funny, artistic and intelligent movie. Every stereotype about dance, like the rich white girl learning to hip hop and winning the dance competition, is presented with extreme irony. Yes, I just wrote extreme irony and as silly as it sounds, you will surely agree after watching Freak Dance. The forbidden and dirty dance, the male dancing rebel, the poor working class dancer and the dance for political reasons, this bad excuses for acting have taken away the fact that dancing is just dancing and that this is enough to be a respected form of art. Freak Dance does dancing some justice and is surprisingly entertaining and above all very well danced and sung.
