About the Film
Dancing Souls follows the recovery journey post surgery of Flamenco dancer, Kristelle. She's a passionate woman who overcomes daily hardships thanks to the life-changing power of dance and the unique philosophy behind Flamenco. Working with her community, she shares the difficult and triumphant moments of life as an artist and continues to pass on the self-empowering tools of Flamenco with humor and an unbreakable spirit.
Kristelle's goal eventually, is to embark with a group of students on an incredible voyage to trace the East Indian roots of Flamenco back to Asia. These “origin dances” inspired cave frescoes, sculptures in temples and classical dances in India and are still present in certain dance studios and theaters of Spain. Kristelle interfaces with other dance expressions abroad, collecting priceless data with artists in several countries, safeguarding these cultural treasures for future generations and finding commonalities in our different artistic expressions.
The film partners with the Aditi Foundation Inc. a California, 501 (c) (3) who's mission is supporting and promoting the performing and living arts and multicultural program throughout California through ethnic dance interface and scholarship programs for the youth.
