Watch the Official Trailer for Juliet Doherty's Movie

We've been endlessly curious about budding ballerina Juliet Doherty's movie project, On Pointe, since we first got wind of it back in March. At that point, the film's producers were hoping to raise the funds they needed to complete the project via Kickstarter.

Well, they ended up not just meeting but exceeding their fundraising goal (bravo, ballet/Juliet fans!). And now On Pointe has released an official trailer.


There's lots of pretty dance footage of Juliet, of course. But there are also clips of the talented students of Master Ballet Academy, where Juliet trains IRL, and which is featured prominently in the film. (MBA director Slawomir Wozniak is one of On Pointe's executive producers.)

No release date has been announced yet, but stay tuned! In the meantime, you can watch Juliet and her fellow MBA students being beautiful in our recent MBA class Facebook Live event.

Enter the World of the Knicks City Dancers with 2 of Their Newest Rookies

Auditions rarely fail to deliver on suspense. But this? This was the nail-biter to end all nail-biters. Hayoung Roh and Chelsea McCloskey, both professional dancers based in NYC, had made it through what felt like endless rounds of cuts, both on Zoom and in person. Out of the nearly 500 dancers (from 30 states and nine countries) who'd answered the Knicks City Dancers' open call for video submissions, just 20 remained—McCloskey and Roh among them. "We were separated into six holding rooms, where we kept trying to figure out the math," Roh recalls. "How many girls are there in total? Who was called back?"

Finally, the women returned to the audition room to dance one last time—or so they were told. Instead, KCD head coach Alyssa Quezada dropped her bombshell: All 20 women had made the final cut. They would be 2021–22 Knicks City Dancers: the latest and greatest edition of one of the most prestigious NBA dance teams. "It was the biggest celebration and the coolest moment of my dance career so far," says McCloskey now. And that was just the oh-so-perfectly-dramatic beginning.
