Critical Acclaim

You think we're the only country that goes a little crazy for competition? Welcome to Denmark, where ballroom dance competitors import their partners.

— Robert Bianco, USA Today

Filmmaker Katrine Philp had tremendous access and captures Egor’s moodiness and Mie’s calculations. The teenagers are a duo to be reckoned with when they take the dance floor.

— Jacqueline Cutler, Zap2it

Philp brings a keen eye to this observational coming-of-age profile, perfectly balancing interpersonal drama with dance, and taking a sensitive approach.

— Basil Tsiokos, What (Not) to Doc

With sensitivity and insight Katrine Philp unravels the story in a poetic and aesthetic way.


A moving story of a young dancer that has left behind everything for his dream, and together with his partner faces great expectations, cultural challenges and a constant requirement to perform.
