I watched this so many times when I was in my teens (1980s) the VHS tape broke. About 10 years ago I came across it at a used book sale! Alas, I now no longer have a working VCR.  Then I found this online! Quality isn't the best, but the realities of ballet life hasn't changed much in 35 years.

That looks like a great little film! I only had a quick flick through but it brought back lots of memories! (Mainly of unitards... 😀)

What a great little film. I had never seen this before! Thank you! Sad the discussion of friendship. That was never my experience as a student dancer nor teacher.

It may have been over 30 years since this film was made, but the pathos has not changed one bit.  This film made me cry. 

I would love to see a follow up... even on the "success" story part... because (at least from what I've experienced as a parent)... I'm not sure the anxiety about "measuring up" and wanting to be seen for your soul (as opposed to a body) ever really wanes...
