Coming Soon to POV: Dance for Me

by |

Watch the trailer: Dance for Me premieres Monday, July 21, 2014, at 10 PM on PBS stations. (Check local listings.)

Since success in the intensely competitive art of professional ballroom dancing depends on finding the right partner, aspiring Danish dancers often look beyond their borders to find their matches. In Dance for Me, 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.

The broadcast will also feature a new StoryCorps animated short, A Good Man. In A Good Man, Bryan Wilmoth and his seven younger siblings were raised in a strict, religious home. He talks to his brother Mike about what it was like to reconnect years after their dad kicked Bryan out for being gay.

After the broadcast, visit the Dance for Me companion site to watch the full film online for free for a limited time following the broadcast (July 22, 2014, to August 20, 2014), learn from the filmmaker in an extended video interview, find out what’s happened to the dancers since the cameras stopped rolling, download a discussion guide and other viewing resources, and ask filmmaker Katrine Philp and dancer Egor Kondratenko your questions live on Google+ on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 (the day after broadcast) from 1-2 PM ET (10-11 AM PT).
