Tutu Much documentary

3 posts in this topic

Elis Swerhone's documentary Tutu Much will be screening at Cineplex cinemas on 17 & 20 January.

Through the eyes of 9 young girls from around the world, TUTU MUCH is the behind-the-scenes story of what it takes to become a dancer. These girls have been given the chance of a life-time, a four week long summer audition to get into a professional ballet school. Which girl will have the perfect ballet body? Who will have the passion, the drive and the endurance to make it? And will she and her family be ready to make the sacrifices? TUTU MUCH gives us all a rare look at 9 remarkable girls and a summer that no one will ever forget.

I could be wrong, but judging by the trailer this looks like a reworking of the Ballet Girls series about the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School that aired on television a couple of years ago.

Yes, it looks very much like Ballet Girls to me - suspect the footage has been re-worked, to fit cinema format and timing?
