In 1990, Madonna was looking for dancers who could vogue to join her controversial "Blonde Ambition" tour. The chosen seven young male dancers: Salim, Kevin, Carlton, José, Luis, Gabriel and Oliver, were catapulted to fame. They soon discovered that they were role models in the gay community, though they didn't always feel like it. After a falling out over the outing of Gabriel in the documentary TRUTH OR DARE, through a gay kiss, the group went their separate ways to pursue their professional careers. Now, 25 years later, STRIKE A POSE reunites the surviving dancers for the first time airing long-buried secrets. Moving, captivating and told from the heart, STRIKE A POSE garnered a 25-minute standing ovation at its Berlinale World Premiere.
