Big Ballet [2014]

“To watch people who love to dance get the chance – and to be good at it – after they’ve spent years being too embarrassed or discouraged to do so just because of their size is, I’m here to tell you, quite uplifting. There was nothing to laugh at, except perhaps yourself for allowing tears to spill over your lower lids while watching a TV programme.” – Tim Dowling, The Guardian

“Sweet, heart-warming but with a necessary dose of reality… This was a frank and refreshing glimpse into a rarefied world obsessed with size.” – Patrick Smith, Telegraph

Series directed by Kirsty Cunningham
