He spends his life practicing chassé and entrechats with his girlfriend and dance partner Yelenia. However, when his parents move to Florida to be reunited with his sister, his happy teenage world is turned upside down. He's forced to leave behind Cuba, his colleagues at school, his relatives, and his beloved girlfriend. Facing rejection and homesickness for his native Cuba, Alexis feels lost and alone. When he gets accepted into the prestigious Harid Ballet School, he has to start all over. He doesn't speak the language, has no friends and his Cuban style of ballet does not match the American schooling method. Meanwhile, his parents are making sacrifices for his career by working extra hours at their humble jobs. Alexis knows that he has to find his way quickly in the bourgeois and elitist world of American ballet while trying to remain faithful to his roots. Written by Indyca See less
