De elfjarige Billy Elliot woont in een mijnwerkersstadje in Engeland. Billy krijgt iedere week wat geld voor zijn bokslessen die hij eigenlijk niet leuk vindt. Wanneer Billy moet nablijven, ziet hij de ballerina’s van mevrouw Wilkinson trainen. Zijn liefde voor muziek en dans wordt aangewakkerd en het duurt niet lang of hij is de eerste én enige jongen die zich bij het balletgroepje aansluit.
