Three Dances (12+)

Hungary, 2018, colour, 76 min.
Director: Gloria Halasz
Three Dances is a feature-length documentary film about three generations of ballet dancer boys studying classical ballet at the Hungarian Dance Academy. Each dancer keeps the 600-years-old dance art alive, while struggling with their separation from their families, their strong expectations and having physical and mental pain. While introducing the three main characters in their 1st, 5th and 9th year in the academic year, we would like to establish a general picture of the career path a young student follows in order to become a ballet artist.
