Jig is an upcoming film about dancing. I'm just not sure if it's gonna be shown locally.
Those closest to me know how I loved dancing when I was a teen but eventually faded from the scene when I was separated from my group. But if I could do it all over again, I would still be dancing up to now.
No regrets, though. No regrets.
Jig is the remarkable story of the fortieth Irish Dancing World Championships, held in March 2010 in Glasgow. Three thousand dancers, their families and teachers from around the globe descend upon Glasgow for one drama filled week. Clad in wigs, make up, fake tan, diamantes and dresses costing thousands of pounds they compete for the coveted world titles. A year of incredibly hard work for just a few tense minutes on stage. This feature length documentary was given access for the very first time to the little known world of competitive Irish Dancing. With financial backing from BBC Scotland and Creative Scotland, award-winning filmmaker Sue Bourne went behind the normally closed doors of Irish Dancing and found a remarkable world. Wonderful characters of all ages from across the globe... Ireland, Holland, Britain, America and Russia. "JIG" discovers a world of dedication, hard work, obsession, passion. Success and failure. And astonishing talents pushed to their limits in the quest for perfection.
