Sizzle and shake


First Unity Church's Spiritual Cinema series continues with an uplifting documentary about determination, diversity and dance. The award-winning Mad Hot Ballroom profiles several kids from three poverty-stricken New York City schools as they learn to merengue, rumba, tango, foxtrot and swing. Will the youngsters learn to embrace traditional ballroom dancing in this modern age of hip-hop? How many times will they step on each other's toes? Will the teams make it to the citywide finals? Come see why some critics are calling this "the best movie since Spellbound." Fri., Aug. 18, 7:30 p.m., 469 45th Ave. N., St. Petersburg, $5 suggested donation, 727-527-2222,
