New York City Ballet's Tiler Peck makes her curatorial debut this evening at the The Music Center's Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, and she's brought an all-star dance cast with her to the West Coast. The BalletNow program will run through July 30, and features a mix of classical and contemporary works danced by 24 international stars.
But if you can't make it to LA this weekend for a performance, we've got the next best thing—courtesy of the BalletNow dancers themselves. We've been spotting rehearsal clips on Instagram all week, and we've gathered them right here. From Romeo and Juliet to Justin Peck's Chutes and Ladders, the dancers (which include Lauren Cuthbertson of The Royal Ballet and Jeanette Delgado who is currently on a leave of absence from Miami City Ballet) are as diverse as the program lineup. Just do yourself a favor, and watch with the sound on.
