rated for 0 + years Featuring spectacular dance sequences, this is an inspiring biopic on ballet star Carlos Acosta, who danced his way from a poor quarter of Havana onto the world stage.
Carlos is an unruly child. Everything he knows he has learned from the streets of Havana. But his father recognizes a particular talent: he can dance like no other. Against the boy's will, his father sends him to state ballet school and gives him the nickname of Yuli – the son of Ogun, the West African god of war. Yuli (Carlos Acosta) soon becomes the best dancer of his generation, enjoying international success, and is the first black Romeo at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. But despite all the fame, he never forgets his roots.
