Selected from Dance Films Association’s Production Grant application pool, this Work-in-Progress screening is a special program to highlight the process of dance filmmaking, acknowledge its challenges and rewards, and encourage collective discovery. This year’s screening is Danseur by Scott Gormley, a documentary about the gender stereotypes, challenges, and bias that young men face in ballet, featuring James Whiteside, Principal at ABT; Peter Stark of Boston Ballet; and Derek Dunn and Harper Watters of Houston Ballet all sharing their incredible and often painful journeys through adolescence and onto the stage.

Discussion moderated by Ellen Bar, producer, NY Export: Opus Jazz and Ballet 422.
