"Gotta Dance" is "Bad New Bears: morphed into the flip side of "Mad Hot Ballroom.". "Gotta Dance," the movie, chronicles the debut of the New Jersey Nets' first-ever senior hip-hop dance team, 12 women and one man -- all dance team newbies, from auditions through to center court stardom. As smooth dance moves are perfected and performed in front of thousands, aging myths and misperceptions are pulverized. Despite swollen ankles, exhausting rehearsals, fashion clashes and seemingly impossible dance steps, the NETSational Seniors go for it, spreading joy, inspiration and cool dance moves as they hip-hop their way into the hearts of Nets fans and beyond.
