Ballet Boys takes you through disappointments, victories, forging of friendship, first loves, doubt, faith, growing apart from each other, finding your own way and own ambitions, all mixed with the beautiful expression of ballet. Lukas, Syvert and Torgeir experience some very important years in the beginning of their ballet careers. But how do they deal with pressure from parents and teachers. They face new challenges in ballet competitions in France and Sweden. But most important is the audition to enter the Norwegian Ballet Academy. Out of the blue Lukas is offered a try-out in the final audition at the Royal Ballet School in London. He has not even applied! This may be his opportunity of a lifetime, and secure his career. During the course of four years we see these boys becoming young men, and friends that separates. These kids need to sacrifice parties and friends from school to fulfill their dreams, and admission to a ballet academy means everything. It's up to a jury to determine if they are the chosen one. Their school teachers is concerned and ask them what they will you do if they don’t make it as ballet dancers. - See more at: http://widehouse.org/film/ballet-boys/#sthash.MkIqTA2e.dpuf
