1. Michael Naylor & Samuel Caleb - White Crayon

We love this short film from dancers Michael Naylor & Samuel Caleb created for YouTube channel Odd Venture. It gives off summer park jam vibes while being presented in edgy black and white. The summer vibes come in no small part from Athletic Progression’s White Crayon sound track. So smooth…


Dance On Screen

2. The Joffrey Ballet - Cathy Marston's Bertha

A Joffrey original in collaboration with choreographer Cathy Marston, Bertha explores the psyche of Bertha Mason, the love-scorned antagonist of the novel Jane Eyre.

In Case You Missed It

3. The Royal Ballet - Swan Lake – Entrée and Adage from the Black Swan pas de deux

Perhaps the title of this one should be in case you’re missing it! Here is a throw back to 2015 with Zenaida Yanowsky as Odile and Nehemiah Kish as Prince Siegfried in the Act III Black Swan Pas de deux of Anthony Dowell’s production of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’s Swan Lake.

5. Anthony Huxley talks about Justin Peck's Belles-Lettres
