Many of this morning's students outside the "GMA" studios with the five teachers in the front row. Chava Lansky.

At 6:30 this morning, I exited the subway in Times Square and walked towards the group of dancers gathered outside the "Good Morning America" studios. The moment I entered the fray, any lingering early morning grogginess disappeared; the energy in the crowd was palpable. By 7 am, the time that "GMA" goes live to millions nationwide, over 300 dancers of all stripes had gathered, and class began.

Lately, New York City Ballet corps member and choreographer, Troy Schumacher, has been busy making one amazing thing after the next. His second world premiere for NYCB, Common Ground, was a huge hit. So it's no surprise the teaser for the his latest work, "Invisible Divide," for his company BalletCollective is equally as enjoyable.

The video, which features music by Ellis Ludwig-Leone of the band San Fermin, was shot while the company was in residence in Telluride, CO, this past summer. (Fun fact: Ludwig-Leone also composed the score for Common Ground, as well as multiple other BalletCollective pieces. It's another indie-music/choreographer combo made in heaven!) Even better, BalletCollective is made up of some of NYCB's brightest: Harrison Coll, Lauren King, Claire Kretzschmar, Ashley Laracey, Meagan Mann, David Prottas and Taylor Stanley. Yeah, let that list sink in for a minute. #StarPower.

Invisible Divide premieres November 4 and 5 at NYU's Skirball Center. In the meantime, the teaser vid will have to do—we know we'll be watching on repeat. Check it out below!
