Bingeing on Ballet

Ballet 422

For ballroomers who also love ballet:

Ballet 422” is a dance documentary following up-and-coming choreographer Justin Peck as he choreographs the New York City Ballet’s 422nd ballet, “Paz de la Jolla.”  First releases are in New York, but the film is coming to E Street Cinema in D.C. on March 6th.  Unfortunately there are no plans to show the film in MD or VA yet.

Unlike other films and documentaries about dance, the focus of Ballet 422 is on the artistic process rather than silly drama about bloody-toed, anorexic, perfection-seeking bunheads.  And the videography is supposed to be just as delightful as the dancing.  Can’t wait!

For more binge-worthy ballet, check out AOL’s docu-series City.Ballet. narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, a former ballerina herself and a New York City Ballet board member.
