And Then We Danced is a vibrant and intense love story set in the dynamic but ultra-conservative world of traditional Georgian dance. Young male dancer Merab has been training since a young age at the National Georgian Ensemble with his dance partner Mary. His world is suddenly turned upside down when the charismatic and carefree Irakli arrives and becomes both his strongest rival and his forbidden desire. Merab finds himself having to break free and risk it all. Filmmaker Levan Akin tracks the intensity of desire brilliantly through the leaps and whirls of the dance steps.

★★★★★ ‘Levan Akin’s And Then We Danced is giddy with the pleasures of first love – how it pulsates through the body and mind’ - Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent

‘Levan Akin’s terrific romance about two male dancers in Tbilisi is electrifying in its physicality and fervent in its storytelling’ -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
