If a dance is not danced, it vanishes. If the Dancer Dances follows a group of New York City's top modern dancers as they reconstruct an iconic and mysterious work by the legendary Merce Cunningham, revealing what it takes to keep a dance alive. Timed to coincide with Cunningham's centennial, the film confronts one of the most urgent issues facing the dance world today: how do we prevent the loss of masterworks to time?

This documentary looks at the current popularity of the social dance movement from the perspective of those involved in it, including many who are just starting to learn the basics of the art, and some who have already made a lot of money off it. It also looks at the resistance to change among some of the more organized and more prominent members of the dance movement. For a casual observer, it will be a great documentary to watch.

I didn't know what to expect when I saw this documentary. I expected to see a bunch of celebrities talking about how they are not comfortable with their bodies. I was wrong. This documentary was a wonderful glimpse into the lives of people who struggle with their bodies and what they do to stay true to their identity. The interviews were incredibly insightful, and it truly hit home. The discussion of what is and is not acceptable is very insightful and takes a lot of hard work to understand. I was incredibly touched by what was said and I encourage anyone who has the ability to see it to see this movie. I think you will be inspired by what you hear. I encourage everyone to see this documentary because it is truly a must see.

I am from the United States, and I had never heard of this film until I was browsing Netflix and stumbled across it. I was a bit skeptical at first because I was worried that it would be a documentary about people living in the village, but after watching it, I was totally convinced it was real. I could not believe how much I enjoyed this film. The cinematography was incredible and the soundtrack was incredible. It was like watching a film from the perspective of people who were actually there. I don't think I could watch it again. It was such a powerful experience. It's amazing to see that this documentary had a profound effect on the people who were there, and I was grateful to have a voice in this world. I highly recommend this film.

The Dancer Dances was an amazing documentary on a real story. I was truly touched by the stories of the two children that were orphaned and were adopted by so many people. I am so proud of them, the people that adopted them, and the people that loved them. I think this documentary was truly a joy to watch, and I hope it is a source of comfort to many people. It is a real eye opener to know that not only children are orphaned, but that people often will help them. The child's stories are captivating, and it was very heart-wrenching to watch the two children's story unfold. I have never seen anything like it, and I am so grateful for the movie's directors for making such an amazing story. I highly recommend the movie to anyone.

This is a great film about a woman, who takes her daughters dance class and shows them how to be a successful businesswoman. It's nice to see a film about people, who are really out there, and really just trying to make a living, and they are not afraid to take risks. It's nice to see that not everyone who is trying to make a living is a crook or is a scam artist. The women in the film are great, and the director did a great job with the film. I would definitely recommend this film.

This movie is so good and so inspiring. I'm so glad I saw it. I have never felt this way about a movie before. The music and dance is just so beautiful. I just loved it. I feel like I'm dancing right now. I just want to watch it over and over. The video is so inspirational and so beautiful. I just wanted to thank them for making this movie and making people dance and feel the way they do. I really hope the next generation of dancers get to see this movie and really feel the power of dancing. I think it's important for everyone to see this movie because it's really inspirational. I am so grateful for all the Dancers and all the people that work for the Dancers. I hope you get to see this movie!
