A still of Justin Peck in rehearsal from Ballet 422, via TribecaFilm.com.
New York City Ballet has a big spring coming up—and not only because of the new JR piece in the works. Ballet 422, the documentary about NYCB dancer and choreographer Justin Peck, will make its debut at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in April! It's one of 12 films competing in the World Documentary Competition, and if the film is anywhere near as successful as Peck's Paz de la Jolla (the ballet-in-process in the movie), we suspect it will win big. I mean, just take a look at this Paz sneak peek from NYCB:
Is there anything better than getting to see Tiler Peck, Taylor Stanley, Amar Ramasar, Sterling Hyltin and more fantabulous NYCBers up close and working out choreography? We think not.
