Dancers from the world-renowned National Ballet School of Canada exericise, repeat routines, lounge, walk, jump, and also dance in this documentary that records their movements and postures - and individual triumphs - with the eye of a Degas. Students are also shown in their lives outside of class, a contrast to the intensity of daily practice. As the teachers exhort, praise, and perform examples of what they want, working tirelessly with their students (the youngest here start at 10), the classes clearly convey the dedication needed to master this physically demanding art form.
