Dancing Classrooms will be on the big screen once again. The documentary “Dancing in Jaffa” is scheduled for release later this year.
Produced by kNow Productions, “Dancing in Jaffa” chronicles Dancing Classrooms’ program founder Pierre Dulaine’s experience teaching ballroom dance to children in Israel in 2011.
Here’s a synopsis of the upcoming documentary:
Dancing in Jaffa follows the journey of internationally renowned ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine as he returns to his birthplace, Jaffa, to fulfill his lifelong dream of teaching Jewish and Palestinian Israeli children to dance together. For generations, Jaffa has been a city divided with the two communities living side-by-side but growing increasingly apart. The film explores the stories of four children forced to confront issues of identity, segregation and racism, as they dance with their enemies. We watch Pierre transform hundreds of lives over the course of four months with the belief that this will forever change the future and bridge the gap between the Jewish and Palestinian people.
