About Dance Nation

Dance Nation follows a troupe of pre-teens as they navigate the hyper-sexualised, ultra-competitive world of competition dance. In this world of sequined leotards and six-foot trophies, the dancers themselves – their needs, their hopes, their fears – matter least.

Dance Nation is a comical and excruciating look at the moment when girls become aware of their own power – and of its limits. Performed by a cast of mature women, the dissonance between a 13-year-old’s dreams and what they will ultimately achieve is stark.

Barron’s writing reminds us of the ferocity of the children we once were.
