POV | Dance For Me

Trailer Coming of age on the dance floor in Denmark

Watch Monday, July 21, 2014 at midnight on WMHT TV.

Professional ballroom dancing is very big in little Denmark. Since success in this intensely competitive art depends on finding the right partner, aspiring Danish dancers often look beyond their borders to find their matches. In this film, 15-year-old Russian performer Egor leaves home and family to team up with 14-year-old Mie, one of Denmark’s most promising young dancers. Strikingly different, Egor and Mie bond over their passion for Latin dance — and for winning. As they head to the championships, so much is at stake: emotional bonds, career and the future. “Dance for Me” is a poetic coming-of-age story, with a global twist and thrilling dance moves.
