Dancing with style

Xander de Boer

Fourteen-year-old Eugène has been dancing since he was six. Not really something boys should be doing, at least, that's what his classmates say. Although Eugène is bullied at school because he likes ballroom dancing, he won't be put out of his stride. This year, he's going to show the whole school that he's a really good dancer and he won't be put down. Will Eugène succeed in convincing his schoolmates that ballroom dancing isn't silly? A film about Eugène dancing his way back to self-confidence (Hollandse Helden, 2012).
