The journey of two young black brothers from inner-city Hulme pursuing their dream of becoming professional dancers. Will they succeed with the odds stacked against them?  Closer To My Dreams is the journey of two young black brothers from inner-city Hulme, describing their trials and tribulations to pursue their dream of becoming professional dancers. Will they succeed with the odds stacked against them? 

The show weaves poetry/rap with Hip Hop choreography. Living very parallel lives, the story shows the journey of two brothers forging the relationships with their peers, family and romantic relationships. In a playful, heartfelt and unique take on family and friendship it explores universal questions of how we respond to the trials and tribulations that life throws at us, what path to take, when to hustle and when to let go.
