Description: Inspired by a true story, Antonio Banderas stars as internationally acclaimed ballroom dancer Pierre Dulane.

But when his classic methods clash with his students' hip hop instincts, he teams up with them to create a new style of dance and becomes their mentor in the process. "Take the Lead" co-stars Alfre Woodard and marks the feature directing debut of veteran music video helmer Liz Friedlander.
