Dancing Dreams is a documentary about an icon of modern choreography, Pina Bausch, who created her famous performance "Kontakthof"(Contact Zone), with forty German teenagers in place of professional dancers.

Pina Bausch—the great German dancer and choreographer—became a soloist of the Essen ballet theater in 1962, and its artistic director from 1969.  After this, she became artistic director of  the Wuppertal Opera ballet.  Bausch and her troupe worked on international co-productions creating performances, inspired by the cities where they performed including: Tokyo, Madrid, Rome, Los-Angeles, and Vienna, among others.

This movie, directed by Anne Linzel and Rainer Hoffmann, tells the story of the fascinating and brave experiment, "Kontakthof". Forty teenagers from Wuppertal—without any dancing experience—are selected to take part in the performance. Every week for ten months they come to rehearse, and these ordinary people mysteriously transform into dancers, with every movement and gesture filled with deep meaning and sensitivity.

The performance contains the signature choreography of Pina Bausch: it is about human contact, language, and relationships between men and women.
