Dancers Make Better…Organists?

You might not think of organ playing as dance-related. (Correction: You definitely don’t think of organ playing as dance-related.) But in this extraordinary clip, world-class organist Cameron Carpenter explains how his experience with ballet, tap and modern dance have improved his intricate pedal footwork on the organ. He also wears some blinged-out organ-playing jazz shoes, which we obviously approve of.

Intrigued? You can catch Carpenter’s fancy footwork in person this Sunday at Alice Tully Hall, where he’ll perform some iconic Bach works as part of Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival.
