Dancing is hard. Writing a coherent story is hard too. There's only room in this movie for one of those.
Center Stage follows the lives of several new recruits at the most competitive ballet school in the country. Life at the school is so intense, the students are driven to crazy behavior like smoking, sassy dialog, and casual sex with guys who promise cookies but don't deliver.
Almost everybody at the school looks the same except the guy who looks like Ichabod Crane which adds an interesting dynamic to the world. The characters are pretty trite, but the dancing is cool. And the over dramatic dialog is pretty enjoyable. You can see why this is Sarah's guilty pleasure.
