A workers’ district of Bytom; Bobrek with a steelworks and a coal mine for “the better future” under Communism; now terrifies with the media accounts of pathologies and hopelessness. Children continue to play against the backdrops of derelict buildings but gradually become devoid of dreams. The Silesian Theater of Dance in Bytom organized dance workshops devoted to break-dance; hip-hop and funky in the area.

Three boys; the main characters of the story; Andrzej; Daniel and Pawel; decided to change something about the way they lived through dancing. With the group of other dancers they prepared a performance at the local theater. During the premiere night their families and friends entered the theater door for the first time. Will their dreams come true?

This paper reflects on the making of Bobrek dance (2002).
