Athlete and artist. Dedication and drive. Body and soul.
A prima ballerina is born from this sophisticated fusion ... and to make it they've got to have it all before they've even had their first date.
Through the eyes of a handful of young hopefuls from across Canada and around the world, Ballet Girls captures the heartbreak of loss and the conviction of spirit required to become a member of the world-renowned Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
This documentary series goes behind the scenes, from the open audition room where girls plié and pirouette for coveted spots within the RWB Summer School, to the drama and painstaking realities of actually living the dream. The series culminates with a triumphant performance for one aspiring ballerina as Clara in the company's annual production of The Nutcracker.
