ANATOMY OF A MALE BALLET DANCER offers a unique behind-the-scenes portrait of Brazilian ballet star Marcelo Gomes. Widely considered the greatest partner of his generation, every ballerina desires to dance with him. From his struggle to reach the top of the ballet world, to his complicated relationship with his father, the film takes us on Marcelo’s journey across international stages around the world. Currently celebrating his 20th year with American Ballet Theatre, Marcelo remains at the peak of his game.
