Storyline

An inside look at the world of ballet. With the complete cooperation of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, Altman follows the stories of the dancers, whose professional and personal lives grow impossibly close, as they cope with the demands of a life in the ballet. Campbell plays a gifted but conflicted company member on the verge of becoming a principal dancer at a fictional Chicago troupe, with McDowell the company's co-founder and artistic director, considered one of America's most exciting choreographers. Franco plays Campbell's boyfriend and one of the few characters not involved in the world of dance. Written by Andrea Barney <andrea808@hotmail..com>

Trivia

The Malcolm McDowell character, Alberto Antonelli, is heavily based on The Robert Joffrey Ballet's longtime artistic director, Gerald ("Jerry") Arpino. Like Arpino, Antonelli is an Italian American former dancer who has gone on to run a prominent Chicago dance company (the chastising speech that Antonelli gives to an Italian-American audience while receiving an award was taken nearly verbatim from an awards speech of Arpino's). Many of Antonelli's turns of phrase in the script were taken from Arpino's speech patterns, as was his habit of watching rehearsals while sitting backwards in a white, open-backed chair that was reserved only for him.

Goofs

After the female dancer finishes her solo, a single male voice is clearly heard shouting "Bravo!" from the audience. The correct word is "Brava", the feminine of bravo. See more »

Brilliant

First, I believe I have seen every dance movie ever made, but I can't ever remember one I enjoyed so much. I personally have been affiliated with the Dance world for most of my life. Not as a dancer but as a Stage Manager. The fact that Ms. Campbell and Mr. Altman allowed the audience to share most, if not all of the Ballets in their entirety was most enjoyable. The usage of High-Def allowed the audience to really feel as if they are there. I had the privilege of watching Ms. Campbell work on "Party of Five" while she was at Sony, where I have had continued employment for almost 10 years. I had great respect for her then as an Actress but have a entire new admirations for now as a dancer. I would love to see "The Company II"
