TUESDAY, JUNE 26 - 6:00PM
Come along with a courageous and colorful group of Australian same-sex ballroom dancers as pursue their dreams to compete in the Gay Games. Filmed over two years, it follows several gay and lesbian couples, competitive or life partners, as they battle homophobia, injury and personal fears to succeed on the global stage.
Ballroom dancing is the ultimate traditional sport. With a reputation for being overtly heterosexual and inflexible rules that specifically bar same-sex couples from competitions, it should be the last sport on earth in which gay men and lesbians would participate. But at a small studio in Melbourne a passionate group of same sex ballroom dancers is defying the rules.
Train alongside Anny (the dance studio owner) and her students through the highs and lows of their training as they prepare for the biggest event of their lives.
Through interviews with Anny, her students, overseas competitors, judges and representatives from the mainstream ballroom dancing world, BALLROOM RULES provides a unique look at people who live proudly outside what society views as the “norm” and the universal passion that drives us all.
"A fun, flamboyant, inspiring, and decidedly different kind of sports documentary that will have you on the edge of your seats."
