Jig

Sue Bourne

Dust off your dancing shoes and join us for this extraordinary documentary about the 40th Irish Dancing World Championships, held in Glasgow in 2010. With unlimited access to the strange and wonderful world of Irish Dancing competitions, director Sue Bourne cleverly tracks eight international participants, ranging in age from ten to nineteen, who are gearingup for the most competitive Irish dancing event of the year. Capturing the remarkable talent, dedication and sacrifi ces of the dancers, their families and teachers, we watch the competitors follow their dreams and prepare for their turn before the dreaded judges. Hugely entertaining and energetic, this is a rare insight into the competitive aspect of our traditional dancing culture. If you like The X Factor, you’ll love Jig!
