Through a unique access to a legendary dancer, Slavik Kryklyvyy, this film takes you deep inside a world at a very personal level. Ballroom Dancer takes place in a vivid world known intimately only by the professionals and the devotees, although recently more and more people have become acquainted with dance following popular TV shows such as Dancing with the Stars. The real competitive world of ballroom dancing, however, is as cruel as it is beautiful. It is romantic yet cynical. The dancers live like nomads and are constantly traveling the globe striving to climb the hierarchy of competitive ballroom dancing. Competition is fierce and very few reach their goal.
