Avant

Episode Guide »
In Uruguay, a forgotten national ballet company performing in a half-finished theater is shaken into life by the arrival of Julio Bocca, one of the best ballet dancers of all time. Retired and looking for a new place in the world of dance, Bocca accepts the challenge to direct the company and elevate it to international competition quality. To this aim he stakes his reputation as he negotiates the tensions between art and bureaucracy. A group of young dancers from varied backgrounds leave everything behind to audition for the resurrected national dance company. They face tough competition from the dancers who already have years of service to the national ballet. Avant explores a nation, a dance company, and three talented brothers as they evolve and discover their identities through the language of dance.
