From Rehearsal to Romance: Jeraldine Mendoza and Dylan Gutierrez

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re taking a quick look at some of our favorite dancing couples. Stay tuned for an exclusive set of interviews on V-Day!

First, we featured Pacific Northwest Ballet power couple Lindsi Dec and Karel Cruz. Next up: The Joffrey Ballet's Jeraldine Mendoza and Dylan Gutierrez!

If their respective Instagram accounts are any indication, Gutierrez and Mendoza love style as much as they love ballet. They serve some serious fashion inspiration, along with lovely dance photos and videos—and adorable pictures of their dog.

Mendoza has danced numerous featured roles with The Joffrey (we spoke to her about her debut as Nikiya, in La Bayadère, in 2013) and Gutierrez also frequently dances leading roles.

Watch the two of them combine fashion and technique in this video from The Joffrey!
