As if we weren't already excited enough for the release of Tiler Peck's documentary, this new trailer has set the excitement bar even higher. Ballet Now drops on Hulu in just a few short weeks and We. Cannot. Wait.
ICYMI because you haven't seen the light of day in weeks—let alone dance-world news—at your summer intensive or Nationals, the documentary is produced by Elisabeth Moss (of "Mad Men" and "The Handmaid's Tale" fame) and follows the New York City Ballet principal as she curates and performs in last year's BalletNOW program in L.A., which was no small feat. The fab #BTS footage lets us in on just how stressful an undertaking that was for Peck.
The new trailer offers much more dancy goodness than the first thanks to more appearances by tapper Michelle Dorrance and by lots of other pros who also performed in the L.A. program. And there's tons of Tiler sneak peeks, too, don't you worry.
Enjoy below. Then, start the countdown to July 20 bunheads!
Everyone loves the multitalented Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. Everyone loves Olympic figure skater (and pop-culture icon) Adam Rippon. Everyone loves when dancers ice-skate, and vice versa. So what could possibly be more lovable than the latest episode of the YouTube show "Break the Ice with Adam Rippon," in which Rippon teaches the sisters Ziegler to skate? (Nothing. NOTHING is more lovable than this freakishly cute video.)

It's safe to say that we're obsessed with the "So You Think You Can Dance" All Stars. Over the past few seasons, we've loved seeing them up on that "SYT" stage, guiding each new batch of contestants. Unsurprisingly, many of the All Stars are as charismatic online as they are onscreen. While we wait to hear which All Stars will be involved in Season 16, here are six from years past that you should totally be following on Insta.

It's been an eventful few months for Sage Humphries, to say the least. Last November, the Boston Ballet company member made her (very well-received) choreographic debut with a piece called YOU, part of the company's BB@home: ChoreograpHER program. Just one week later, Humphries sustained an injury that kept her offstage for a couple of months. But she didn't have much downtime: Artistic director Mikko Nissinen soon asked Humphries to make a piece for Boston Ballet's first-ever appearance at Boston Calling Music Festival. Now that Humphries is back in the studio, Dance Spirit caught up with her to talk about making ballet rock, working with her composer brother, and what it's like to see her name next to William Forsythe's.
