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

The film made me feel physically sick at some stages as being a ballet dancer myself, being giving a bad reputation is not good!<br />Focus film? Why I chose to do this?<br />
