Claim to Fame

Elmhurst Ballet School is thrilled that the official trailer and streaming date for the feature-length documentary film ‘Madu’ has now been released by Disney +. Madu, directed by Matt Ogens and Joel “Kachi’ Benson, officially opened the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Wednesday 7 February, and will release worldwide on the Disney+ streaming platform on 29 March. This inspiring new film highlights a year in the life of Year 9 student Anthony Madu at home in Nigeria and living and training with us in Birmingham. Madu will capture Anthony’s story after being discovered through a viral 44-second video that was posted online in 2020 and garnered over 16 million views. Having grown up in an isolated community outside of Lagos and with almost no formal training , Anthony’s desire is to introduce and expose more of Nigeria to ballet and hopefully inspire other young men and women in Nigeria to pursue ballet. Forming a rich tapestry told on multiple continents, the film will introduce the world to a boy chasing a dream of inspiration that will resonate with audiences everywhere. Both staff and students at Elmhurst are so proud of Anthony’s courage to openly share his story with the world. His journey, marked by change, personal growth, acceptance, and a sense of belonging, is one that will resonate with everyone. Click here to view the official trailer.
