Ballet Boys is a documentary that takes us through four years in the lives of three Norwegian schoolboys and hopeful future dance stars: Lukas, Syvert, and Torgeir. They all strive to gain acceptance into Norway’s most prestigious ballet academy. Beautifully constructed, slow-motion dance sequences and life-altering auditions provide a pulse of drama throughout their journey. The delicate bond that emerges between these friends under unusual pressure is highlighted. Dancers from the Louisville Ballet School will introduce the film and lead a Q & A following the screening.
