Five Dances

Like any young person who comes to New York City to make their dreams come alive, those who strive to become dancers set themselves up for a life of heartache, hard work, competition, and tears. But at the end of the day, there’s joy and worth in what they do, as shown in the trailer for Alan Brown‘s Five Dances, the story of one such young man who does just that: makes his way to the big city on a dance scholarship to work his way up in the contemporary dance world.

Black Swan this is not; the dancers make no allegations that they are perfect specimens, nor does the trailer show them undergoing any rigid standards that you usually see in dance movies. In fact, our dance hero’s main stressors come from the outside world, in the form of family troubles back home and sexual tension with co-workers. Maybe the contemporary dance world is a little more lenient?

Check out the trailer for yourself here:

The choice to cast real dancers in every role certainly helps with the authenticity of the film. Each and every one of those dance scenes looks gorgeous – but can those dancers act?

Five Dances is in theaters October 4th. [The Playlist]
