Storyline

This documentary shows Jacques D'Amboise teaching school children in New York City to dance - both at school and at the National Dance Institute (of which Jacques D'Amboise was the founder). The lessons culminate in "The Event of the Year", which is danced by the children - and which has been especially created and choreographed, for the occasion, by Jacques D'Amboise. Kevin Kline narrates the ballet. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

Trivia

For 31 years was the only film to ever win both an Oscar and an Emmy (it won three, in fact: two Primetime Emmys and a Daytime Emmy). It's practically impossible for a same film to win both awards because the Emmys are only given to TV productions while the Oscars are given to cinema productions. In 2015, Citizenfour (2014), another documentary, won a Primetime Emmy Award after winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. See more »
