Thursday, June 27 at 4 am on WFYI 1
Get a peek into the world of ballet through the eyes of its future stars. A ballet dancer is a unique combination of athlete and artist - it is a profession that requires a commitment to training as a pre-teenager and whose likelihood of success in transitioning to a professional career is rare. In this performance documentary, some of the world's premiere pre-professionals take the stage - not in competition, but in a professional performance with some of the stars of the ballet world in a special presentation by the Indianapolis City Ballet. Witness the amazing athleticism of these young dancers, as well as go behind the scenes for the staging of an elaborate finale performed by more than 100 young dancers.
