In Jaffa, Jewish and Palestinian Israelis live side-by-side, but for years, the two communities have been segregated. Now, their children are being brought together through dance. Renowned ballroom dancer, Pierre Dulaine, believes that dance can overcome cultural and political differences. Ballroom dance teaches life skills, but more importantly, it teaches self-respect and respect for your partner. Watch as these children overcome racism and prejudice and become partners.
