Can a queer person of color and an aging asian female broadway veteran defy the odds of once and for all break the barriers of the ballroom world’s traditional gender roles of male being the leader and female as the follower? This documentary is about the journey and dance partnership of Abdiel Jacobsen a former principal dancer of Martha Graham and Kristine Bendul a 46 year old ballroom dance newbie bonded by their aspirations of ushering an evolution and a new era of inclusiveness, diversity, acceptance, female empowerment and gender equality/fluidity in the world of ballroom competition. Witness their triumphs and tribulations both on and off the dance floor to prove that their vision has its rightful place to further enhance the acceptance and recognition it deserves while realizing its parallelism and significance to our current cultural & social climate.
Abdiel Jacobsen and Kristine Bendul also MADE HISTORY by becoming AMERICA’s FIRST male/female professional ballroom dancers who competed as a GENDER NEUTRAL couple in a DanceSport’s Professional Ballroom Competition.
