to the 1987 hit, Set in 1958 Havana, this is the story
of a lonely 17-year-old American girl, Katie (Garai),
who moves to Cuba in the days right before the Revolution
with her parents, where she soon meets a charming and
talented local dancer, Javier (Luna), who encourages
her to discover her natural dancing abilities. Undoubtedly,
it all leads to an exciting climax as Castro's forces
take control and the Americans are forced to leave...
will the girl choose to stay with her true love or go
back to America with her mean, un-dirty-dancing parents?
(Ward and Slattery play Katie's parents; Boorem plays
Susie, Katie's little sister; Lavan plays Javier's revolutionary
brother, Carlos; Jackson plays an American teenager
who doesn't like Katie's new boyfriend)
put your left foot in, left foot out, yada yada. The
Cuban's are revolting. All mocking aside, the storyline
for DD2 sound really really interesting. As it should
with the A-List Ron Bass writing it.
Mister, The thigh's the limit."
