Dancing in Jaffa – Returning to fulfill a lifelong dream

Dancing in Jaffa- Pierre Dulaine

Returning to Jaffa to fulfill a lifelong dream

Renowned ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine returns to Jaffa to fulfill his lifelong dream of teaching dance to Jewish-Israeli and Palestinian-Israeli children.

Dancing in Jaffa the Movie, follows four different children.  All of whom are forced to confront issues of identity, segregation and racial prejudice, as they dance with their enemy.

The classroom becomes a microcosm of the Middle East’s struggle to work together harmoniously while still caught in the politics of the region and race.

With the guidance of Pierre, the children, who live uneasily side-by-side, learn to dance together and trust one another.
