Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Hoping to cash in on the lucre generated by the American hit Flashdance, which was released about 11 months earlier, director Vittorio de Sisti put together Dance Music, but its hurried production is evident in the script and the acting. The story centers on a group of young performers living in a combination of large apartment and dance studio, where they practice with hopes of making it to New York for a special audition. In the meantime, they do menial labor at restaurants and car washes in order to support themselves. Various artful filming techniques enhance the dance numbers, some shot in aesthetically stunning locations -- though this is not enough to bury the film's flaws.
