Determined To Dance

15 min. / 2010 / documentary / USA
A portrait of a group of young dancers with Down syndrome and their families. The video also includes rehearsal footage and actual performances.

Portrait-in-motion of a troupe of young adult dancers with Down syndrome. Led by Kenny, irrepressible Elvis fan, fanatical storm-chaser/weatherman, wannabe Romeo, and an awesome, dedicated dancer, they prepare tougher pieces for larger audiences, but the number that always has fans on their feet in tears? "There's a place for us...somewhere."
