· At Rouyn-Noranda, in Abitibi-Témiscamingue, we find a dance school that has been run by the same person for 45 years. With her unique approach, choregrapher Lynn Vaillancourt teaches singing and different kinds of dancing. The PRELV school does not limit itself to dance teaching. It spreads values that are filled with humanity and dignity to girls aged between four and twenty. Over a one-year period, filmmaker Beatriz Mediavilla integrated herself into the PRELV activities, and the documentary Danse avec elles exposes the school’s distinctiveness and the ties that unite the young dancers together. Witnessing the different events that punctuate their daily lives, we browse through these young girls’childhood, and become adults along with them.
