In the new film FIVE DANCES, choreographer Jonah Bokaer and writer-director Alan Brown reveal an intimate and inspirational portrait of a small downtown modern dance company. This story of five gifted New York dancers features Chip (Broadway's Ryan Steele in his first film role), an extraordinarily talented 18 year-old who is quickly initiated into the rites of passage of a New York dancer's life, where discipline and endless hard work, camaraderie and competitiveness, and the fear of not being good enough inform every minute of every day.
