The Five Dances world premiere took place at the prestigious Dance on Camera Film Festival at Lincoln Center in New York this past February. 18-year-old Chip arrives from Kansas to Manhattan to become a dancer. With no belongings, a place to live or family support, and without knowing anyone in the Big Apple. Yet, he manages to find a place within a small dance troupe and we follow his rigid discipline, endless rehearsals, the fear of falling in love with your dancing partner and the endless competitiveness. An intimate film, gentle and emotional about the struggle of a young dancer fulfilling his dream. Impressive dance scenes and fascinating photography.
