Movie Info

Through a unique access to a legendary dancer, Slavik Kryklyvyy, this film takes you deep inside a world at a very personal level. Ballroom Dancer takes place in a vivid world known intimately only by the professionals and the devotees, although recently more and more people have become acquainted with dance following popular TV shows such as Dancing with the Stars. The real competitive world of ballroom dancing, however, is as cruel as it is beautiful. It is romantic yet cynical. The dancers live like nomads and are constantly traveling the globe striving to climb the hierarchy of competitive ballroom dancing. Competition is fierce and very few reach their goal.

An insightful portrait of the problems of falling from grace and working with your lover, even if the editing may throw more shade on Kryklyvyy than he deserves.

Bonke and Keofoed have crafted a compelling portrait that asks questions about the nature and inherent dangers of competition, ambition, sacrifice and commitment both on and off the dance floor.

Danish filmmakers Bonke and Koefoed keep their cameras so intimate that this movie feels more like an intensely emotional drama than a documentary.

Fans of Strictly Come Dancing looking for their next fun fix should best move along; there's nothing to see here.

It's about trying to act with grace under pressure, about experiencing the acrid taste of failure and knowing you'll never again be visited by that heady adrenaline rush of success.

As we witness the rehearsals, the recriminations and the disintegration of their relationship we gain a real sense of the high personal cost for those in pursuit of perfection.
