“Meet the Artist ’15: Alexandra Shiva – Sundance Film Festival”
The featurette above suggests that How To Dance In Ohio will be a powerful documentary.
Directed and produced by Alexandra Shiva, How To Dance In Ohio depicts a unique coming-of-age tale:
“In Columbus, Ohio, a group of young people with an array of developmental challenges prepares for an iconic event – a spring formal dance. They spend 12 weeks confronting and practicing their social skills as they prepare for the big event, to be hosted at a local disco.”
“Working with their trusted psychologist, they deconstruct fear and larger-than-life social anxiety one step at a time by picking dates, dresses, and, ultimately, a King and Queen of the Prom.”
The documentary will premiere in the upcoming U.S. Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
