Ballroom Dance

Ballroom dancer, Pierre Dulaine, takes his belief that dance can overcome political and cultural differences and puts it into action with one hundred fifty 11 year old Jewish and Palestinian Israelis learinng ballroom dance.

Dulain originally started a similar program in New York City to teach inner city kids life skills through dance including etiquette,  self-esteem, discipline, and respect. The documentary "Mad Hot Ballroom" was a film on his work in New York.
