The Ten Year Dance Project is a long term series working with dancers around the world who dream of a professional career. Starting early in their training I return year after year to document not only their growth as a dancer but how they are changing and growing as a person. Following them all the way to their first year as a professional dancer.
Most kids can't decide what they want to do until they are eighteen. Dancers start taking classes as young as three years old. Those who want to make it career can spend up to fifteen years of their lives preparing just for the chance. It will take a substantial financial and time investment from their parents. Constant sacrifices from the dancers. At a relatively young age they will face a highly competitive world filled with constant highs and lows. Of those dancers who stick with it only about 3 percent will go on to professional careers. By comparison it takes the average PhD student only six to eight years to complete their degree. This series is dedicated to all the dancers who make huge sacrifices to live their dreams.
