Dance, Gay Romance: VIDEO


Writer/director Alan Brown is looking for some post-production financing on his film Five Dances, which "follows the rocky emotional journey of an 18-year old dancer (the amazing Ryan Steele) with talent to burn, who must choose between his responsibility to his broken family in the Midwest, and forging a life and career for himself."

Check out the trailer, AFTER THE JUMP...

You may recall Brown's previous effort, Private Romeo, which is a gay retelling of Romeo and Juliet set in a military academy.

  1. TOO much drama.

  2. Hopefully they'll get money for the post-production. Parts of it look very good. These stories are important even today, when we read too often about the guys who feel they have no future when realsing they are gays.

  3. I am TOTALLY looking forward to this film. I have loved Alan Brown's other projects and this trailer looks fantastic. Ryan Steele, who is totally wonderful on Broadway in the musical Newsies, will be great in this film.

  5. ALAN - you nailed it dude. How about The Life and Times of a Dishrag, or the award wining: Harvey Milk's Socks. Spellbinding.

  10. Ryan Steele may have talent to burn in the dancing department. Acting, not so much.

  11. It looks sweet. I will go see it with a half-dozen of my posse.

  12. Hey guys, cut Ry some slack. This is his first ever film role. He scored the role due to his dance talent & looks.He could stand to be a lil bit more "out" in real life than he is but that might break the hearts of the many fan-girls who swoon over him nightly @Newsies.

  13. Hey PDX...I'm mocking ALAN for God's sake. Get a clue. This film looks terrific!

  14. "Private Romeo" was one of the ballsiest, craziest, riskiest films I'd seen in years, let alone one of the best-ever Shakespeare adaptations. It convinced me that the director has gobs of talent and is unafraid to go way out on a limb, which is what artists should do. This looks like it's going to solidify him as a filmmaker to watch. (He also clearly has an eye for beautiful, talented young actors.)

  15. What DBack said...

    "Private Romeo" startled me. I was expecting something cheesy with gratuitous shower scenes, and it ended up being lots more artistic and true to Shakespeare than I anticipated. I'm definitely looking forward to this one!

  16. I would see Ryan Steele in anything. His dancing is jaw-dropping, and he has charisma to burn. Why are people talking about his acting, when they haven't seen the film? Based on this trailer, he looks to be a fine actor.
