“Ghetto Ballet” is a documentary that chronicles the lives of four young ballet dancers living in one of the poorest towns on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa.

The film shows the dancers vying for two coveted spots in a local dance company that could be their ticket out of poverty.

The film’s director, Jeremy Simmons, told CNN he felt compelled to tell their story. “The kids were amazing,” he said.

“I knew after that first day that these kids would speak to a broader audience. They had incredible personalities; they were so open and honest and talented. I was blown away.”
