    New idea: how dancers are represented?
  • 5. How are dancers represented in film?
    I believe that in most dance films dancers are represented to
    be obsessed with there weight and with being the best. Is this
    really how every dancer is? I want to go into more depth and find
    out if this is true or not.
  • 6. In every dance film?
    Pushy mother
    Rival dancers
    A dancer that is aspiring to be as good as another dancer
    Some dance films, girl sleeps with man in charge to gain part
    Eating disorders
    Least talented dancer succeeds in the end
    These are just a couple of things I thought of on top of my head.
    I want to find out more!!

    I watched Black Swan at the weekend and was horrified how the main character a ballet dancer had been portrayed. The film made me feel physically sick at some stages as being a ballet dancer myself, being giving a bad reputation is not good!
    Focus film? Why I chose to do this?
  • 8. Ideas for comparison films..
    Centre Stage
    Save The Last Dance
