Movie Info

The coming of age tale of an extraordinarily gifted young dancer recently arrived in New York City, Five Dances is a visually sensual glimpse of life and first love in the downtown contemporary dance world. Shooting mostly in and around a Soho dance studio, with original dance by the internationally renowned choreographer Jonah Bokaer, writer/director Alan Brown (Private Romeo, Superheroes, Book of Love) and his cast of five of New York's most talented dancers capture the emotional turbulence and creative excitement of a small dance company during the process of creation. Introducing Ryan Steele (Newsies, West Side Story) in an exciting film debut. (c)Paladin

Critic Reviews for Five Dances

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

A lovingly shot valentine to work and body and art, and a generous, ultimately happy little story of a lost boy finding a community and a kindred soul.

Five Dances should well impress dance aficionados even if its skimpy narrative proves less than inspired.

Rather than adapting the pieces to conform to his paper-thin narrative, Brown explores the tensions and contortions of dancers expressing fresh emotion through a pre-existing art form.

Just when the plotting had me sighing with impatience, Brown would get back into showing us rehearsal and things would liven up again. It's in the recording of dance that this movie comes alive.

There's an interesting vibe there, but it's not enough to save what seems like a failed experiment.

Though the film's untested cast struggles with the drama, and the sketched-out story is often banal (there are several amateurish calls-to-mom scenes), the presentation of a specific city subculture is etched from the heart.
