"Only When I Dance" is a classic narrative documentary following two young teenagers, Isabela and Irlan, as they strive to realize an extraordinary dream - one girl, one boy, both black and poor, and living in one of the most violent favelas on the outskirts of Rio. Irlan and Isabela both want to dance ballet, and their ambition is to leave Brazil to join one of the great companies in the North. For them, dance is the way out, an escape, and on stage, an ecstasy that is rarely found in their day to day lives. The question is - can they make it? "Only When I Dance" follows these two gifted teenagers during the year that will make or break all their future dreams. This event is FREE and open to the public.
