Dancing with Maria, the infinite passion for dancing 

The scene of a black and white film footage of a young dancer painting the air with her movements quickly hypnotizes us. It looks like an animated postcard sent from Europe in which the protagonist owns an immaculate and serene face, but not deprived of an elegant picardy.

it was the golden age of Maria Fux, the argentine dancer eho took her passion all around the world, less for being her profession and more for being her way of life.

Decades later, at age 90, María continues to teach dancing in her small studio located in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Through this precious documentary we can be privileged witnesses of their classes, sessions where the body and music learn how to speak a magic language.

These observational moments are combined with Maria’s narration. She tells the story of a life dedicated to dancing, like in this phrase: "Life brought me in different phases: a lot, nothing, a little and something. But I do know which is my way. "
