Dancing Across Borders is a film opening next week at the Quad Cinema. It features Sokvannara Sar, a Cambodian boy discovered in Angkor Wat and flown to the School of American Ballet. This movie follows his amazing story to its culmination with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. He had no ballet training prior to his move to New York. Learning English and dance at the same time – no small feat!
Although it might be a tough film to pin down, I expect it will be well worth the effort. Hat tip to Dancing Perfectly Free.

Sorry to be missing this one. The Nederlands Dans Theater II is playing at the Joyce Theater in New York City from April 9th through April 12, 2009.
The group started with the purpose of training dancers between the ages of 17 and 22. It has now evolved into an eclectic and innovative dance unit.
The troupe will be performing Lightfoot León’s Sad Case, Said and Done and Shutters Shut – a duet set to a poem read by Gertrude Stein, and Kylián’s Sleepless, set to music by Dirk Haubrich.
The Joyce Theater is at 175 8th Avenue at 19th Street
