In La Danse, director Frederick Wiseman allows us to observe multiple corners of the Paris Opera Ballet, from rehearsal studios to costume rooms to administrative offices. We get extensive access to choreographers as they work with dancers in both classical and modern styles. You needn't be a dance aficionado to marvel at the beauty and athleticism on display. Wiseman doesn't ignore the reality that all this art costs money. He observes a marketing team as they strategize on how to give American benefactors something extra for their $25,000 contributions. For such a generous gift, they get to sit in on a rehearsal. Tagging along with Wiseman, our access is priceless.
