Saturday April 20, 2013 marked the world premiere of “Dancing in Jaffa.”  

Renowned ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine stars in this charming documentary that offers a unique perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Five diverse Jaffa-based schools host Dulaine’s Dancing Classrooms program. Ballroom basics are taught to an ethnically mixed group of children, the most passionate members of which are trained for a citywide competition. What results is a sweet and incredibly moving tale filled with moments of truth, poignancy and hope. In Arabic, English, Hebrew with subtitles.

Pierre was recently interviewd by the Huffington Post where he actually did an impromptu lesson with his guest host.   Check it out!
