Directed by Rafael Froilan, “Mananayaw” features snippets of dancers behind the scenes, illustrating what it takes to become a male ballet dancer. Much is at stake during each performance, and although their careers are some of the most difficult to build, after a single misstep, it can all be over.

  1. This is a wonderful documentary for those aspiring male ballet dancers out there and to all who will watch it because they will know what it takes to be a male ballet dancer and how hard and dangerous it is, so in return if they ever meet someone who wants to be a male ballet dancer then they could give some tips. Anyway, the way the writer wrote the article is just right because he/she gave enough information for those who are interested to watch.
