Streetdance

I took my kids to see the film Streetdance at the weekend.

Can anyone tell me why there is a snow white English hero and heroine at the centre of the film?  Pretty young Northern girl goes out with black boyfriend – he jumps ship and joins another crew,  she falls in love with white ballet boy.

Didn’t the same thing happen with the BBC rendition of Andrea Levy’s Small Island?
