Three Times Ballet Dancers in Street Clothes Wowed Us
March 4, 2015

A screen capture from Heatscape

Vogue recently spotlighted this film, which previews Justin Peck’s new work, Heatscape, to be premiered by Miami City Ballet at end of the month. In the video, dancers—casual in jeans and Keds—explore the city’s mural-covered Wynwood Walls, which inspired the ballet.

If you like that, be sure you’ve seen the music video for “Man On Fire” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, directed by Ballet 422’s Jody Lee Lipes. In the uplifting final scene, New York City Ballet dancers perform in a West Side Story–esque alley on a dusty stage of gravel and sand.

And for a final ballet-in-streetwear favorite,  who could forget the mysteriously captivating Cylindrical Shadows, featuring choreography by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and dancers from Pacific Northwest Ballet? We guarantee you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another world.

Ahhhh. Have a relaxing Wednesday evening, everyone.
