Somewhere in middle America, an army of preteen competitive dancers plots to take the dance world by storm, by any means necessary. If their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top and win Nationals in Tampa Bay. Clare Barron’s DANCE NATION, directed by Suli Holum, is a satirical dark comedy about the ignition of adolescence and the chaos it injects into all life as we know it.
