Totally Tiler (And Robbie)
When I see a dancer I love, I tend to get a little obsessed. Like after the first time I saw Sarah Pippin perform at competition, I could. not. stop. watching. her. videos.
Productivity goes straight out the door and I'm hooked on researching. Photos, videos, things I can watch or print and hang at my desk...you get it.
Sweet, romantic, awesome Tiler Peck.
You know her story: Former comp kid takes the ballet world by storm and flies through the ranks at New York City Ballet, nabbing herself a principal dancer title.
And you know about her love life, too, right?
She's dating fellow NYCB hottie (and principal) Robbie Fairchild.
I imagine their life together is perfect and filled with pink tights, pointe shoes and well-trained puppies.
I saw Tiler perform the lead role in NYCB's production of The Sleeping Beauty on Friday night and now all I want to do is watch more from her...and pretend to be her.
Enjoy this clip of Tiler and Robbie dancing a Dee Caspary contemporary routine (cool!) at last year's Vail International Dance Festival.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is some SERIOUS #goals. Her strength and power onstage borders on superhuman. But what's extra magical about Mearns is that she really puts in the fitness and cross-training work outside of the rehearsal studio. And she's overcome her fair share of injuries. Which is why she was the perfect source for Vogue's latest ballet fitness story.
Well, this brings class videos to a whole new level! Choreographer Phil Wright and dancer Ashley Liai have been together eight-plus years, but she was still in total shock when he proposed to her mid-dance at Millennium Dance Complex earlier this week. Why? Well, the whole thing was unbelievably perfect.
In the dance industry, dancers don't always have a say in what they wear on their bodies. This can get tricky if you're asked to wear something that compromises your own personal values. So what should you do if you find yourself in this sticky situation? We sat down for a Q&A with "Dancing with the Stars" alumn Ashly Costa to answer that very question. Here's what she had to say about the options dancers have surrounding questionable costumes.
