Taking audiences behind the scenes, she presents an intimate and mesmerizing portrait of this dynamic and innovative artist who continues to delight and inspire us.
Using brilliant film clips, previously unreleased audio recordings, personal memorabilia, and stories he shared with her over their decade together, Patricia Kelly guides us on an unforgettable journey into the life of one of our most beloved stars and the man who changed the look of dance on film.
