This New Dance Film Stars Four of Our Favorites

What’s better than watching a bunch of great dancers perform? Watching a bunch of great dancers from different genres perform. When the collective force of all that diverse awesomeness is applied to a single project, the result tends to be pretty incredible.

The United Artists Initiative is an organization designed around that collaborative principle. And its new film, The Enemy Within, features four dancers we can’t get enough of individually: New York City Ballet’s Tiler Peck, Dragon House Crew member Marquese Scott, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Matthew Rushing and Complexions Contemporary Ballet’s Samantha Figgins (our February 2013 cover star!). They’re like the dance version of the Captain Planet team, right? It’s almost hard to imagine what their crazy powers combined will create.

The Enemy Within‘s title refers to self-doubt, and the 20-minute film apparently dramatizes dancers’ journeys to overcome their insecurities. It’s scheduled for release in December of this year, but you can get a sneak peek in the trailer below.
