Dancing Nation

Rosemary Lee

2001 – 2020

Documentary about community dance projects in England for the Foundation for Community Dance. Made in collaboration with Peter Anderson.

Rosemary Lee’s documentary film made in collaboration with Peter Anderson, Dancing Nation, provides a unique view of the everyday dancing lives of four people: a 15 year old break-dancer, a woman who is spending her retirement as a member of AMICI Dance Theatre, a 19 year old dancer with African Cultural Exchange and a father in his mid-40s with DugOut Adult Community Dance. It reveals both the value and the impact of dance on themselves and their communities.
