Produced by Dramatic Risks, Dancing Lessons, takes place in the epoch of the Second World War, when Florence Waren, the heroine, was a successful ballet dancer on the threshold of a career with the Ballet Russes. Unfortunately, Adolph Hitler had a different plan. Anyone could ask themselves, "what can one person do?" Especially if they were just a dancer. This film is about just what one person can do. Featuring Interviews and period footage, Florence Waren graces our exploration of a difficult time with poise and insight.
How do we survive? Florence Waren was a Jewish performer "hidden in the spotlight" through their contacts in the entertainment industry in Paris. From this position they were able to save other lives.
