I guess it's not really about ballroom dancing, but more uses it. Sounds interesting.
'Syncopation' at its best when it's dancingmore...
Robert Hurwitt, Chronicle Theater Critic
Ballroom dancing can be such a richly textured metaphor -- for the aspirations of outsiders, developing intimacy, dreams of social integration, the personal liberation of the lonely -- that it's little wonder the theme has been so widely used in films and plays of late. Allan Knee's "Syncopation" is charming and amusing enough much of the time, but not quite original or interestingly explored enough to make much of an impression.
