Six teenagers from the Royal Danish Ballet school and their teacher, Ann Crosset, travel from Denmark to China in order to initiate a group of young dancers from the Beijing Dance Academy to their less than conventional pedagogy. The technique requires that the dancers use creative problem-solving as a starting point for their own artistic growth. This short film paints the portrait of a unique training method resulting in accomplished and well-performing artists. Sensible and interiorized, this film demonstrates a creative process that stems from an inspiring teacher’s vision, choreographer August Bournonville’s legacy, and each dancer’s personal belongings.
