Rare Day

Big Ballet

A troupe of plus size amateurs attempt to realise their dream of dancing Swan Lake. Rebellious ballet legend Wayne Sleep was the shortest dancer ever to make his debut on the Royal Ballet stage and wants to unlock the world of ballet for a wider audience and break one of the biggest taboos in the ballet world: size. Under the watchful eye of Wayne and Prima Ballerina Monica Loughman the dancers ruffle the feathers of the ballet establishment as they attempt what some experts say is impossible.
