For 40 years, the Battery Dance company has been a force on the New York and international scenes. In hundreds of performances and workshops in American schools, they’ve not only moved audiences but changed thousands of young lives. Seeing dance as a universal language, founder Jonathan Hollander created Dancing to Connect, in which his dancers travel the globe to teach the tools of creativity to youth who have experienced war, poverty, sexual violence, extreme prejudice and severe trauma, enabling them to express their feelings and stories through dance.
Directed by Sundance award-winner Rob Fruchtman, Moving Stories follows six diverse dancers to India, Romania, Korea, and Iraq, documenting their process of teaching choreography and collaboration for performance within a week, while capturing the struggle, frustration, determination, and transformation of students and teachers alike.
