Ühe unistuse maja

House of a DreamÜhe unistuse maja / Haus der Träume

Since its founding in 1946, the Tallinn Ballet School has launched many dance careers. Director and dance expert Ruti Murusalu draws a portrait of the renowned training institute as a place where different generations of dancers cross paths. It starts with the very little ones, who receive stringent instruction in the basics at the barre. Then there are the young adults, close to graduation, and the former ballet stars, who teach, judge, and counsel the up-and-coming youngsters. One of those is Marjana, the school’s great hope. The film follows the dancers closely, especially her. From the harsh practice regime that takes everything out of her, both physically and mentally, we also accompany her to international competitions and performances. The film makes it crystal clear how much work and stamina, as well as how many tears, go into fulfilling the dream of becoming a ballerina.
