You Must Watch This Stunning NYC Dance Project Feature
NYC Dance Project, how we love thee: all the flowing gowns, spectacular dancers and breathtaking photographs give us life—time and again. So what could be better than an entire book filled with these images? Try a feature video from Adorama, showcasing the shooting process of Deborah Ory and Ken Browar, the husband-and-wife team behind the lens and project. The video, which features tons of amazing footage of New York City Ballet's Miriam Miller, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's Yannick Lebrun and Vienna State Ballet's Liudmila Konovalova, offers its own intimate portrait of how these portraits are made—from directorial choices to costume selection to the overall workflow of a session. It's fascinating to watch Ory and Browar in action, and equally as fascinating to watch how the dancers respond. Check it out below!

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)
All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
When it comes to injury-prone body parts, knees reign supreme for dancers. But a little strengthening can go a long way in preventing painful outcomes. We turned to Dirk Hartog, a physical therapist with Westside Dance Physical Therapy in NYC, for three exercises that'll support and stabilize your knees.
