| Synopsis

Their names are Oscar, Alicia, Léo, Kim, Pier, Maxime, Johan, César… They are between 16 and 18 years old and are in their third year of dance training at the prestigious Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. A training of excellence which prepares them to become professional dancers. In all, there are 24 students, half in classical and half in contemporary. The series SEULE LA DANSE immerses us throughout the school year in their daily lives. With the ambition of piercing the secret of their total artistic commitment, we vibrate with them to the rhythm of the deadlines of each term, sharing their worries and their enthusiasm… as well as the quite singular way in which these young dancers seize the current revolutions around the body, the gender issue and sometimes try to move the lines of a standardized and demanding institution.

A total immersion in the 4th best performing arts school in the world, at the heart of the lives of these young students, invested body and soul to make their dream come true.
