DVD: Dancing Dreams

Documentary on teenaged amateurs learning to dance Pina Bausch is sheer delight

Youngsters' contact: a sweet, beguiling and genuinely enlightening film about the pull of theatre

This is the one DVD of all the recent issues of dance on film that will show you simply and honestly the rigour and the beguilement of how people are drawn to dance, and what dance draws out of them. A straight documentary about the dance-theatre of Pina Bausch, it's really about teenagers and their extraordinary ability to soak up opportunities, innocently perform complex things and wipe them clean of old associations - and make all us feel more human and restored.
