    This documentary offers an overview of the major dance trends of the twentieth century by showcasing the work of four contemporary dancers and interviewing them about their individual artistic approaches to dance. Featured performers include Evelyn Hart of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, dancing, with partner Rex Harrington, of the National Ballet of Canada, Uwe Scholtz's stunning choreography "Jeune Homme" to the music of Mozart; Antonio Canales, a master of flamenco, who dances to the accompaniment of his musicians; Maya Plisetskaya, the legendary Russian dancer and former star of the Bolshoi Ballet, who dances "Isadora Duncan," created especially for her by Maurice Béjart; and American dancers Andrea Boardman and Derek Reid, who perform in a duo which evokes the daily lives of slaves in Nacho Duato's "Rassemblement," driven by the rhythms of Toto Bissainthe's Haitian music.
