Dance Dreams – NY’s International Ballet Showcase

Forty-eight dancers with dreams of the big time converge on New York for the New York International Ballet Competition. “Arriving from as far away as New Zealand and as nearby as Brooklyn, the dancers, in tattered tulle skirts, ripped T-shirts or see-through tights, are a varied lot with a common denominator: most view the dance world from centerstage in a mid-level company, or through the crowd in a corps de ballet. They want to catapult their careers into what many believe is the center of their universe.”
