The Kirov Ballet in Leningrad is probably the most-filmed dance school in the world, but filmmaker Robert Dornhelm manages to pull fresh coals from the fire in Children of Theatre Street. It is emphasized throughout that the newcomers to the Kirov have much to live up to. This, after all, was the training ground for the likes of Nijinsky, Nureyev and Baryshnikov. There is plenty in Children of Theatre Street to appeal to ballet aficionados and non-fans alike. An added bonus is the warm narration by Princess Grace of Monaco, who used to go by the name of Grace Kelly.
