Producer Meta Louise Foldager has raised $3.26m (Euros 2.4m) in financing for Pernille Fischer Christensen's Everybody's Dancing (Drenge og piger danser).

The film is Fischer Christensen's follow-up to debut A Soap (En Soap), which won the 2006 Berlinale's Silver Bear and Best Debut awards as well as best film at Denmark's Bodil Awards.

The budget for the new feature marks quite a step up from the shoestring budget for A Soap, which was backed by the New Danish Talent scheme at the Danish Film Institute.

Everybody's Dancing is a romantic drama but includes dancing scenes because of its setting at a dancing school. The plot follows the daughter (Trine Dyrholm) of the school owner who falls in love with an electrician (Anders W Berthelsen) who has a shady past.

Trust is handling international sales on the film. The Danish theatrical release is slated for January 2008.

Foldager has previously produced films including political thriller King's Game and Lars von Trier's recent comedy The Boss Of It All.
