Hugo is a boy with a passion for dance. He tries different sports at the urging of his family, but can't escape the rhythmic beat of his true calling. With unwavering determination, he convinces his mother to let him explore Ballroom Dancing.

It seems as if Hugo has found his happiness, but doubt creeps in when he realises he looks different from the other dancers.

ï»Hugo Dances is a gentle tale of self-discovery, embracing uniqueness, and the power of following your dreams.
