Everyone has a favorite dance film, one that thrills, causes impromptu spins around the room and prompts immediate resolution to get to class and work harder than ever. Whenever possible try to see dance films on the big screen. (If you are in the Los Angeles area, the Crest Theater will be showing ‘Best of the Bolshoi’ through August 6th, 2013).
For me the IT movie has got to be The Red Shoes. I have an old VHS copy that I love and I could buy a dvd, but really what I love most is to watch when it airs on TV, somehow it is more of an ‘event’. I’ll message all my friends, “The Red Shoes is going to be on tonight!” There will be such a buzz of excitement and the next day EVERYONE is working full out in class. Just talking about that film has an amazing effect!
What is your favorite dance film? Please share what reaches your dancer’s heart. 🙂
