Synopsis

Sponsored by:

Hawaii National Bank

Fleur, a hip hop natural, puts her parents' tofu business behind her when she goes to university and joins college dance crew BombA. The crew's main ambition is to defeat their arch-rivals, the Rooftoppers. Fleur takes a shine to the crew's leader Dave, but he only has eyes for sexy teammate Rebecca.

But when Rebecca makes fun of Fleur's more radical dance moves (calling her a fiddler crab), Fleur storms off. She runs into Alan, the chairman of the University's Tai Chi Club, and soon takes a shine to Fleur and her moves, and against the odds, she also is transfixed with Alan’s earnest love for tai chi as well. But, when Fleur decides to rejoin BombA, she sprains her ankle, confining her to a wheelchair. With BombA now disbanded, is there any hope for this scrappy group of dancers to make it to the final competition?

THE WAY WE DANCE, like other dance movies, is a celebration of vibrant youth, as well as hopes and dreams fulfilled. It is also a true Hong Kong film, made for the local market, with local flavors and cultural touchstones, a rarity in an industry with all eyes towards Mainland China.
