Two Dollar Dance

Every weekend, hundreds of Latino immigrants pack the dance clubs of Jackson Heights, in Queens, New York City. There, they meet the "two-dollars ballerinas", women who will be their dance floor partners for two dollars a song. Two Dollar Dance unveils the soul of these clubs through Victor, a patron, and Liz, one of the ballerinas. Through their eyes, this film dives into the stories of men and women who leave their families and countries behind to work in the United States. Now, on any given night, $2 is the price of happiness.

"Two Dollar Dance is utterly watchable. Highly recommended for those looking for an unusual glimpse into immigrant life in America."
