Dance is by far the most important thing in 14-year-old Skip’s life. He’s got big ambitions, so whenever he gets the chance to take part in a dance competition with his all-boys group the Rhythm Rangers, he’s completely committed to the rehearsals at the local dance school.
In addition to being physically challenging, the voguing dance style poses other problems for Skip. What if his classmates from high school see him perform? Skip has two good friends named Robin and Kynan at the dance school, but as he explains in an interview, his life isn’t easy outside this trusted environment. He gets teased at school because his classmates think dancing is only for girls and gay guys. But that doesn’t stop Skip from going all out for his passion: “It’s the people who do special things that come furthest in life,” he explains coolly and with apparent self-confidence. In this short film, we discover precisely what this young man has had to overcome to arrive to this realization.
