todancelikeaman_videocoverFirst Run Features has released a documentary entitled “To Dance Like a Man.” This film revolves around three little boys, identical triplets, who want to be professional ballet dancers. They wish to someday attend ‘The National Ballet School of Cuba‘ which is a very prestigious school that only accepts a few people a year to learn dance and perhaps become a world famous dancer.

Angle, Cesar and Marcos, age 11 are followed around both at home and at school.

It is explained that Cuba is a country that loves their ballet. The viewer is shown the best dancers in the school, all of which want a chance to be in the big show, the national school. The dancers are interviewed and at the end of the film, you see which students made the cut and who didn’t.
