Thursday mornings in May. You’ve already seen these films, it’s time to discuss them!

Directed by Baz Luhrmann
Scott Hastings (Paul Mercurio) struggles to establish his personal style of dance on his way to win the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Dancing Championship, but his innovative and flashy steps are not considered “strictly ballroom”. He further alienates the dance community when he pairs with Fran (Tara Morice), a plain local girl considered a “beginner dancer”. Together, the team gives it their all and makes dreams of the National Championship title come true. Rated PG, 1 hour, 34 minutes. Film is rated PG, 1 hour 34 minutes; please watch it before attending.
All four films are available on Netflix. Watch the film on your own, and then Zoom in for a conversation on the dates listed above. Professor Bob Kagan, who teaches Communication at Central Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford, will lead the discussions via Zoom.
