Original Title:

Ballroom Dancer

This is dance documentary as psychological thriller, as former World Latin champion Vyacheslav ‘Slavik’ Kryklyvyy attempts to recapture former glories by moulding new partner (and lover) Anna Melnikova in the image of his long-lost muse, Joanna Leunis. Strictly Come Vertigo.

More gripping than a Michael Vaughan foxtrot, this is the perfect docu-thriller for the Strictly aficionado.
