A Special Gift

Is this the film that inspired Billy Elliot?

Made in 1979 for ABC TV in America, A Special Gift is the story of a boy who takes ballet lessons but does not want the rest of his basketball team to find out. Like Billy Elliot it features an audition, a letter and a clash of dates; unlike Billy Elliot (the film) you get to see lots of ballet.

This is an excellent film for boys who are not sure how or whether to tell their friends about dancing.
