Filmed over one dance season, Ireland's Disco Kids follows the fortunes and failures of three dance schools across Ireland. This programme offers an intimate and amusing portrait into the lives of young dancers as they train and compete for the biggest competition in their calendar - Dancer of the Year 2011. With an insight into the competitive world of disco dancing, the programme focuses on the members of the community whose lives centre around the glitz and glam of disco. Some hope and dream that dancing will be their ticket to a different life, while others just hope it keeps their kids off the streets. We follow the tears and tantrums, highs and lows and the sheer dedication of a community whose only religion is dancing.
