This sounds like a fascinating film showing the collaboration between the Berlin Philharmonic, its conductor Sir Simon Rattle, and dance choreographers to bring the arts to underprivileged children. Has anyone seen it?

Note: the article contains some PG-rated language.

Rhythm Is It!, which has been shown to select audiences at London's ICA and is seeking a British distributor, allows the viewer to be privy to the fascinating process as the musicians descend from their elitist stage and 250 children morph from a chaotic and disillusioned mass into an exuberant yet disciplined troupe of dancers.
Under the patient but stern guidance of British choreographer Royston Maldoom, who drives around in a red post-office van, the unruly youths from the bleakest of backgrounds slowly realise their potential. As they stretch their limbs in ways they have never done before, they discover much about themselves and learn to love the music they declare to be "really cool" and "weird".
