Ryan Steele and Garen Scribner Are So Beautiful in This Music Video
Our longtime fave Ryan Steele and the lovely Garen Scribner are pretty busy at the moment, traveling the world in the touring company of An American in Paris. But they took some time out of their nutso schedule to film a video for the indie band Moondrunk's "Sold My Soul." And we are SO GLAD they did.
Choreographed by Lorin Latarro, a Broadway vet who most recently made dances for Waitress, the video has a powerful message. We see an older man—played by dance/theater artist Yehuda Hyman, a beautiful mover himself—ruminating on his loveless life, stunted by his religious beliefs. Steele and Scribner's ardent portrayal of his inner turmoil just might make you a little teary.

It's not enough to be a master of one style—even when they specialize in one area, dancers are frequently asked to fuse multiple genres, or step out of their comfort zone for specific projects. With their wide variety of summer programs, Joffrey Ballet School aims to prepare dancers for the demands of a professional career. We asked five faculty members to share how they do this:
Right now, it seems like the entire world is equal parts obsessed with and thoroughly creeped out by Jordan Peele's Us, the horror film about devilish doppelgängers that's currently rated 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
But while the normal human reaction to Us is to hide under the covers for approximately 17 years, "Step Up: High Water" superhero Kendra "K.O." Oyesanya's reaction was to make a totally bananas dance video.
