Movie Info

A deep-dive look inside the fascinating but little-known world of same-sex competitive ballroom dance, HOT TO TROT follows a small international cast of four men and women, on and off the dance floor, over a four-year period. An immersive character study-and an idiosyncratic attack on bigotry-this powerful and celebratory story unfurls with the rhythms and energy of dramatic cinema.
