After leaving her home in Texas at the early age of fifteen, Joy Womack made history as the first U.S.-born student to graduate from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy’s main training program, and the first American woman to sign a contract with the Bolshoi Ballet.
Providing exclusive access to her grueling training regiment, JOY WOMACK: THE WHITE SWAN follows the world-renowned dancer’s personal and professional life – from her daily challenges, setbacks, and injuries to becoming prima ballerina of the Kremlin Ballet and her performance of a lifetime in Swan Lake.
“Womack is very much a documentary filmmaker’s dream: outspoken and always willing to take center stage, she is a force of nature to be reckoned with.” –Filmuforia
