It's crazy to think about what the dance world would be like without the high-quality digital video that's taken over the Internet. We wouldn't have inspiring class videos (like this one featuring Tate McRae), or mind-blowing music videos (like Parris Goebel's one-woman production), or live streams for all kinds of special events (hello, World Ballet Day).
My guess is that 10 years from now, we'll all be wondering how we even watched dance before 360 video. A creative, awwww-inspiring use of the technology popped up the other day courtesy of The New York Times. Their "The Daily 360" team took 360 video technology into an audition for the School of American Ballet. The results? Kinda cute and, not gonna lie, kinda creepy. But don't take my word for it! Watch the strikingly intimate footage for yourself:
