Go Behind the Scenes of the "Level Up" Vid with Ciara and Parris Goebel

What goes into the making of an instant-classic dance video? You'll find the answer in the mini documentary Ciara's team just released. Following the creation of the pop star's latest music vid, "Level Up"—choreographed by the ever-epic Parris Goebel, and featuring the magical dancers of Goebel's ReQuest crew—it's a very, very real look at all the sweat and struggles that made the finished product possible. Crazy-talented musical artists: They're just like us! (In that they spend ages rehearsing in the studio, at least.)

We especially love Ciara's honesty about being a total Parris fangirl (same), and the low-key, collaborative vibe the two of them have during the rehearsal process. Most humans would be at least slightly intimidated by the presence of a pop icon, but as we are all well aware, Parris Goebel is not most humans.
