Unusual, Charming, Ambitious, Energetic, Riveting

See it if you enjoy top-notch hip hop dancing. Talented yg performers work hard for 2 hrs! Endearing/engrossing. Strg visuals. Clever set/costumes.

Don't see it if you want a coherent story. Broad outline makes sense, but hard to follow. Still, if you like dance, this is a strg example of hip hop!

Relevant, Masterful, Energetic, Great dancing, Youthful

See it if Enthusiastic, super-talented young performers dance to chill hip-hop music. Emotional theme of lovers separated by immigration wall.

Don't see it if The theme got repetitive. A lot of the same conflict for 2 hours. That might not matter if you are just there to enjoy the dancing.
