Elise is a 26-year-old ballet dancer who has been training for the Paris Opera Ballet since she was a child. She is one of the most promising dancers in her class, and she is poised for a successful career. However, her dreams are shattered when she suffers a serious ankle injury during a performance.
The injury is so severe that Elise is told she may never dance again. She is devastated, but she refuses to give up. She starts physical therapy, and she begins to explore other forms of dance, such as contemporary dance.
One day, Elise is invited to audition for a contemporary dance company. She is nervous, but she gives it her all. The choreographer is impressed with her talent, and she is offered a place in the company.
Elise is thrilled to be dancing again, but she soon realizes that contemporary dance is very different from ballet. She has to learn new techniques, and she has to let go of her old ways of thinking about dance.
With the help of her new friends and mentors, Elise slowly begins to find her way. She learns to express herself in new ways, and she finds a new love for dance.
Rise is a story about resilience, hope, and the power of art. It is a film that will inspire anyone who has ever had to overcome a challenge.
