When the Brazilian rainforest home of young Princess Nisa (Laura Herring) is threatened by greedy American businesses, she travels to Los Angeles with Joa the shaman (Sid Haig). There Joa is thrown in jail, and Nisa must find a way to stop the rainforest destruction herself. When a young man who loves to dance crosses her path, and together they enter a televised lambada contest, Nisa might have found the answer to her prayers.

Critic Reviews for The Forbidden Dance Is Lambada
A deadly combination of inept political cartooning and fatigued, dirt-poor filmmaking anti-skills.
What's a nubile young monarch to do? Why, head to the States and school the nature-hating, money-grubbing Yanks with some hearty forbidden dancing, of course!
A musical without the spark of classics like Flashdance or Fame.
