I am a ballet teacher and had my eye on this film for a while so, when a couple of my students recommended it I sat down to watch it. I say 'sat down' but in reality I sat for 5 minutes and then got up and stretched while watching it. You simply can't sit and do nothing while watching these wonderfully talented kids work so hard. It's incredibly inspiring. You really invest in each story and hope they can all achieve their dream (sadly of course, that's unlikely.) I have recommended it to all my students, and funnily enough, some have watched it before coming to class, and then really blown me away with how hard they're working! Fantastic film.
