Back in May we had mentioned the release of a documentary on Competitive Ballroom Dancing – Dance For Me. For those who missed it, there is a way to watch it.
DANCE FOR ME follows a young Ballroom dancer on his journey filled with great expectations, loneliness, cultural challenges and a constant requirement to perform. It is a film about a vulnerable young dancer that has left everything behind for a new life in a totally strange family and culture. With sensitivity and insight Katrine Philp unravels the story in a poetic and aesthetic way.
At their first international tournament they rank really bad and at home problems are piling up. Egor is having a hard time adjusting to the different life in Denmark. Suddenly things change completely on the dance floor and Mie and Egor win the Danish Championship and they are selected to represent Denmark at the European Championship. They are on their way to the top.
*For a period of time, Egor & Mia have stopped competing together, as he mentions in the interview below. In 2015, they have announced their Re-Connection as partners and competing in the WDSF AL. Congrats and Yay!
