In West Side Story, Anita says that the boys dance like they’re trying to get rid of something. There is no trick photography in this film. It begins by advising the audience that the movie has not been sped up in any way. The people in the movie really do dance as fast as it appears on screen.

Families who enjoy this movie will also enjoy Freestyle, a documentary about extemporaneous rap, and OT: Our Town, a documentary about a high school production of Our Town in a Compton high school that has not put on a play in 20 years.
