Closer to my Dreams

Two young, black brothers from inner-city Manchester dream of becoming professional dancers.

Weaving together poetry, rap and hip hop choreography, we follow the brothers as they build friendships and relationships and try to succeed in the face of adversity.

Closer to my Dreams is a playful, heartfelt take on family and friendship, exploring how we respond to the trials and tribulations life throws at us, and knowing when it’s best to hustle or just let go.
