Shaw is indeed very brave to bring a movie like Mad Hot Ballroom for distribution in Singapore. Despite the title, it is not mad or hot. It is a documentary about children taking ballroom dancing lessons which can get the local audience screaming "Boring!"

Taking it at face value, it is a charming and likeable piece which can get you cheering the children on as they get into the finals of the ballroom dancing competition. Beneath the surface, it's how children from different races and backgrounds come together for a common passion. Dance comes first, competition second.

Sad enough, some teachers and instructors are the one who think differently. Face the reality - is it really the process or the final trophy that really matters?

I am not sure if you joined the SYF or other similar competitions before. Think about how schools are driven now in getting gold standards rather than nurturing their students to enjoy the process.

My group didn't join any competitions when I was in school, but we enjoyed the process nevertheless. Would a competition bind or tear the group? I really don't know.

Mad Hot Ballroom – Pleasure lies in the simple process
. Doesn't have to be mad or hot.
