Fear of Dancing

Fear of Dancing Documentary Poster

AN off-beat film about dance

Fear of Dancing follows director Michael Allcock’s global quest to understand why he and so many others on this planet are terrified of dancing – what science calls chorophobia. Newly single – and back on the dating scene – the filmmaker is again forced to confront what it is that makes a person bolt for the exits when the dance floor opens up at social events. What could trigger such a deep-seated reaction? Hilarious and heartbreaking, the search for answers reveals a rarely seen world full of turns and twists — rife with sex, spirituality, robots, virtual reality, and a deadly medieval epidemic.
