1 videocassette (U-matic, NTSC) (29 min.) : sd., col. with b&w sequences; 3/4 in.
Guests are six young dance students: Darren Gibson, the first graduate of the New Ballet School to join the Feld Ballet; Rebecca Metzger and Robert Lyon, School of American Ballet students who received the first Mae L. Wien Memorial Awards; Efrain Bracero, a student at the Dance Theatre of Harlem school; Angela Zieziulewicz, a student of the Joffrey Ballet's American Ballet Center; and Sant'gria Bello, a student at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center. They talk about various aspects of a dance student's life: their reasons for aspiring to dance careers; sacrifices they have made; stress and anxiety caused by weight, competition, and injuries; and their perceptions of the qualities of a good teacher. Recordings depict classes at the School of American Ballet, the Ailey school, and the New Ballet School. In addition, Metzger is seen dancing a variation from Balanchine's Divertimento no. 15, and Lyon is seen working in the studio in excerpts from Virginia Brook's 1987 film School of American Ballet: Mae L. Wien Memorial Awards. Bello is seen in a studio performance at the Ailey school, and Gibson is seen performing in Feld's Harbinger with the Feld Ballet.
