Dance on Film

Notoriously difficult to capture on film, dance is a diverse and captivating art form. Alice's collection includes everything from line dancing to Swan Lake. From the grace and discipline of the ballerina ('Margot') to the fiery passion of the flamenco ('Carmen Flamenco') and the pulsating spontaneity of krumping ('Rize') - discover the exciting union of moving to music and movie-making.
