100 Best Quotes from Netflix’s Dancing on Glass

In Netflix’s Spanish film titled Dancing on Glass, a ballerina by the name of Irene receives the lead role for the production of Giselle in her dance company. Although this may seem like a dream come true, the pressures of getting into the mindset to play Giselle by the company director Norma brings Irene’s world into chaos.

Through a new friendship with a fellow company dancer named Aurora, Irene is able to ignore her critics and focus on her love of expressing herself through dance. Ballet is more than the music and costumes to these performers, it’s a way of escaping the struggles of everyday life. The film itself focuses on topics that many dancers may be able to relate to such as struggling with eating disorders, depression, harsh directors, and detrimental injuries.
