About Dancing in Jaffa
Dancing in Jaffa is a touching documentary that puts a youthful, human face on an age-old struggle. The power of dance unites sworn enemies as renowned ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine takes his program, Dancing Classrooms, back to the city of his birth to teach Israeli and Palestinian children to dance and compete together.
"Marvelously moving and quite inspirational documentary about the potent, peace-making power of dance."

"Dancing in Jaffa is a charming, often moving documentary about how dance can work magic in breaking down barriers."
