Skip & The Rhythm Rangers

14-year-old Skip is a dancer. Skip is passionate for his dancing that allows him to express himself. Skip is part of the dance crew Rhythm Rangers, which participates in dance competitions. Despite Skip’s confident, tough exterior, Skip suffers from being bullied for his hobby. Apparently, boys don’t dance.

The film tackles a difficult issue head on: bullying hurts, even if it is only one word. The film examines the way we encounter and respect others around us, and shows us the long lasting consequences of bullying.
