"Dancing in Jaffa"

This is a charming and very moving film about the dancer Pierre Dulaine's project to teach ballroom dancing to a mixed group of Jewish and Arab 5th grade students in Jaffa, Israel. Dulaine is an internationally awarded dancer and in his later years he went on to run the program "Dancing Classrooms" in the New York public schools and other cities. Teaching neighboring students in Jaffa to dance together was his biggest challenge. “I cannot say enough about this film. It gives a clear-eyed version of a possible future in a heavily conflicted political environment. You will love this movie,” Mark.
