'Jig' Set for Cinema Release


Jig is the remarkable story of the 40h Irish Dancing World Championships, held in March 2010 in Glasgow. Three thousand dancers, their families and teachers from around the globe descend upon Glasgow for one drama filled week. Clad in wigs, make up, fake tan, diamantes and dresses costing thousands of pounds they compete for the coveted world titles.

Award-winning filmmaker Sue Bourne (My Street, Mum and Me, The Red Lion, The Falling Man) was given access for the very first time to the little known world of competitive Irish Dancing and reveals an extraordinary year of obsession and dedication for just a few tense minutes on stage.
