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!

If you have big ideas and the drive to make them a reality—as well as a strong rapport with your fellow performers—you might be a good fit for a leadership role. But even the most dedicated dancers can stumble during the transition from peer to peer leader. Try these tips to make the most of your tenure at the top.

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.
