The coming of age tale of an extraordinarily gifted young dancer recently arrived in New York City, Five Dances is a visually sensual glimpse of life and first love in the downtown contemporary dance world. Shooting mostly in and around a Soho dance studio, with original dance by the internationally renowned choreographer Jonah Bokaer, writer/director Alan Brown (Private Romeo, Superheroes, Book of Love) and his cast of five of New York’s most talented dancers capture the emotional turbulence and creative excitement of a small dance company during the process of creation. Introducing Ryan Steele (Newsies, West Side Story) in an exciting film debut.
