‘DANCING THROUGH THE SNOW’: WHERE A FIREMAN AND DANCE TEACHER MEET!

January 13, 2022 1 Comment

Despite their many debuts, I saw very few Lifetime Christmas movies. Those I did see were nothing to gush over (at least the majority) and so I didn’t. One I watched post Christmas is Dancing Through the Snow. One of the more charming and cute romantic comedies, the film plays as one of their better premieres.

Dancing Through the Snow (2021) Lifetime TV Film Review

Being a single dad and the best he can be for his daughter Lily is what Michael Foster (Colin Lawrence) lives for. His daughter is obsessed with dance and earning the part of Clara in her upcoming studio production. When a video of Michel and Lily dancing goes viral, the widowed father suddenly goes from anonymous to an attractive prospect for single ladies. However Michael shows no interest until he meets Olivia (AnnaLynne McCord).

Despite their meeting being spontaneous, Olivia is Lily’s dance teacher and has a few challenging decisions of her own to make.

Anytime a hero is a firefighter there’s female viewers who are here for that type of hero. Lawrence makes a convincing one to say nothing of the fact that it’s lots of fun seeing him in something outside of the Virgin River character. AnnaLynne McCord has also been in more than one TV film like this and while she’s not always my most favorite, I do like her here. She plays it pretty well and despite the script having a few awkward lines, it still fits. Unlike Hallmark, this one has a “steamier” first kiss, but it’s still pretty and one that allows for a tender moment between the characters.

One of the things most TV film scripts are doing really well in this season is opening up their characters more so that they’re more honest. This film in particular features some actually dating because two people admit to like. It’s a breath of fresh air and far better than some of its peers. Additionally though minor, I like that Olivia and Michael meet independent of knowing their connection.

While the film is set at Christmas, this isn’t one that feels “strict” Christmas (no complaining from me!). But full disclosure, I may have missed some of the nuances as well since I watched this one (unusual) while I was putting together some graphics and a publication. Point is, you can probably enjoy this one any winter afternoon. There’s romance and Lily is a darling character who, rumor has it, is Colin Lawrence’s real-life daughter. Cannot bring a more realistic father-daughter relationship to screen than the real deal!

Content: pretty standard for a TV-PG TV film. The kiss is a bit “steamier” than most Christmas movies, but still perfectly find for the rating.
