Happy Star Wars Day!
Didn't intend to celebrate, but on Tuesdays there's an hour where I have some students in my classroom who are actually working on another class. (Hybrid learning is weird).
Anyway, attendance is rough today and I only have two boys. I threw on Empire while they are working and they said THEY'VE NEVER SEEN A STAR WARS MOVIE. I assumed two middle school boys had seen them all but I guess not. So here we are.
Heights has been Heights for 15 years now - there was no doubt it would work. But one thing so many movie musicals miss the mark on is the dancing. Dancers are such amazing athletes who can do such amazing things and their work is rarely filmed in a way that shows them off well.
When they could, this movie showcases those fantastic talents and gives them the room to do what they do best. It was a treat to see that on the big screen.
