Congratulations to Luminario Ballet, Pointe's Editors' Choice Video of the Month winners for October. Their piece “Bouquet” was choreographed by Michael Smuin, former artistic director of San Francisco ballet, and set by San Francisco Ballet prima Evelyn Cisneros. The gentle and ethereal pas de deux features a brilliantly glowing couple as the blue-tinted lighting radiates off of their bright white hair, skin, and austere costumes. The clean technique, fluid lines, and effortless partnering combined with the dreamlike aura created by the music and lighting are captivating. One of our favorite moments is when the woman places entire confidence in the man by allowing her off-center arabesque fall into his arms. We look forward to seeing more from Luminario.
