Beyond Moving

Presented by PRIMAA, this uplifting documentary follows rising ballet star Siphe (Siphesihle) November on his remarkable journey from his small township in South Africa, where he was discovered as a young boy dancing with his brothers, to his move at age eleven to train at Canada’s National Ballet School. As he visits his childhood home after graduating, he reflects on where he came from and what lies ahead as he enters the world of professional ballet.
