My ballet class is on Sundays, so I knew I wanted to share something somehow related to ballet today. I've been interested in the choreography of Justin Peck since seeing Ballet 422 earlier this year. While looking up more about his other ballets, I came across this bit from Everywhere We Go, a collaboration with Sufjan Stevens.
I love that it's shot in a studio since this is where dancers spend most of their time--not onstage. I take a class with live piano accompaniment, and some of the best moments are when it's all working and I almost feel as if I'm inside the music.
For more about the musical side of the collaboration, check out this article.
Thanks for having me as guest dj, and I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend!
