Unearthing a treasure trove of archival footage, filmmakers Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine have fashioned an entrancing ode to the revolutionary twentieth-century dance troupe known as the Ballets Russes! It began as a group of Russian refugees, who had never dance in Russia, to evolve into two rival dance troupes.

Rivals with such notoriety, they fought the infamous “ballet battles” that consumed London society before World War II. Ballets Russes paints an intimate portrait of a group of pioneering artists who gave birth to modern ballet.
