Hot to Trot: Inside the world of competitive same-sex ballroom dance

'Mad Hot Ballroom' meets 'Paris is Burning'...or 'RuPaul's Drag Race' meets 'Dancing with the Stars.' Whatever your reference is, the crowd-pleasing documentary 'Hot to Trot' provides a deep-dive look inside the fascinating but little-known world of same-sex competitive ballroom dance.

Following an international cast of four men and women on and off the dance floor over a four-year period, the film is not only an immersive character study-and an idiosyncratic attack on bigotry-but a powerful and celebratory story that unfurls with the rhythms and energy of dramatic cinema. When you watch it you can see how it snagged the Audience Award at New York's LGBTQ NewFest!

88min / digital

A warm & involving documentary...The social, sexual, political & artistic power...gives the topic its unique heft and vitality. (Los Angeles Times)

This documentary...is just as much about life & gender politics as it is about dance. (NYTimes)

Sizzles with artistic, political passions. (San Francisco Bay Times)

Breathtakingly stunning. (QueerGuru)
