Chaille Stovall is a young filmmaker (really young - like 12) who has made a couple films that aired on HBO Family Channel. When he was 8, he made "Boyz in Tights" which centers on how America views boys who perform ballet.

Does anyone have a copy of this film or have any idea how I can find one?

I've never seen it, but am hoping it might provide an interesting peer-based view to help get and keep boys in my ballet studio's children's program.

I did a quick search and found a couple of sites with information on Chaille Stovall:

http://www.mryak.com...20screening.htm

http://www.guardian....4406127,00.html

However, the film apparently isn't available as a tape or DVD. Amazon.com hasn't heard of it.

The Guardian article is a very insightful piece that tells a lot about this amazing kid.

Now if I can only find someone who has a copy of his amazing work...
