See NYCB's Nutcracker—Even If You're Not In NYC!

Can't make it to NYC for New York City Ballet's production of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker? While we definitely advocate seeing the show in person (it's so good!), this year you don't have to make the trip: The performance will be broadcast live to movie theaters nationally and on PBS!

The December 13 (6 pm) performance of The Nutcracker will be in theaters, so check your local movie times (the broadcast is being hosted by Kelly Ripa!), and the company's December 14 (8 pm) performance will be shown on PBS by "Live From Lincoln Center."

Want to know if your favorite New York City Ballet stars will grace the big screen in your hometown? Here's a taste of the casting:

Sugarplum: Megan Fairchild

Cavalier: Joaquin De Luz

Dewdrop: Ashley Bouder

Marzipan: Tiler Peck

Coffee: Teresa Reichlen

Candy Cane: Daniel Ulbricht

Plus, you'll see Lauren Lovette performing as one of the dolls, which we're especially psyched about since she was our September 2010 cover girl!

Enjoy the show!

How to Express Yourself Through Vogue Fem—While Honoring the Community That Created It

"Who are you when you're voguing fem?" asks the choreographer and dancer Omari Wiles, father of the House of Oricci and founder of the dance company Les Ballet Afrik. "What energy is shaping your story?" In voguing, personal expression is the goal, and vogue fem one way to achieve it.

This flamboyant dance form has experienced a recent wave of mainstream visibility, thanks to the critically acclaimed TV drama "Pose," the hit HBO Max's competition show "Legendary" and, now, the proliferation of TikTok videos centered on voguing.

Sean Lew's New Film is Bound to Leave You Speechless

If you know Sean Lew (and let's be real—you should), you know that he pours his heart and soul into his craft. Born a star, Lew has danced alongside artists like Sia and Janet Jackson, choreographed for names like Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor, and performed on two seasons on NBC's "World of Dance."

At only 19, Lew's worn more hats than your average human (or even superhuman), and yet he continues to build upon his long list of natural skills—by adding "producer" into the mix. This time around, he's focused on his own passion project. He produced, wrote, directed, choreographed, edited and even stars in his upcoming film II: An Unspoken Narrative, which also features some of our other fave dancers like Kaycee Rice, Zach Venegas and Bailey Sok, just to name a few.

More than just a dance video, and described as his "life's work put into motion," this experimental film fully encapsulates the past four years of Lew's life, depicting an unspoken narrative expressed through dance. There's no dialogue—everything is up for interpretation. Keep reading to get the inside scoop, and be sure to follow Lew at @seanlew as he continues to influence the world with his endless creative ventures.
