On 29 September, the Royal Academy of Dance will host a Project B screening of Danseur (2018), a film which examines how men in ballet overcome the struggles of social bias, and features artists from major ballet companies, including James Whiteside (American Ballet Theatre) and John Lam (Boston Ballet) as well as young male dance students. The screening is one of a series of screenings supported by the Academy also in London and in New Zealand.

The panel will also feature Scott Gormley, Director and Producer of Danseur, Jake Burden founder of Ballet Brothers an independent dance organisation set up to support male dancers and Mitchell Rayner former dancer with The Australian Ballet who is currently a student on the Academy's new Professional Dancers' Postgraduate Teaching Certificate (PDPTC) programme here in Australia.
