Ellie arrives at art school as a lonely, shy freshman.  But she’s about to leave the mousy Ellie behind in favor of brave Ellie who dirty dances with the devil at a costume party.  Ok, he’s really not the devil.  Well, maybe just a little bit, but that’s a complicated story.  Then there’s her crazy art teacher who makes them draw squares and circles.  Is THIS what Ellie came to school to learn how to do?  Over time, Ellie learns that her dark and moody art actually has a lighter side and that sometimes a devil in disguise is just a devil after all.  (Beth McGuire,, Burke High School Media Center)
