Commercial ballet is a new thing?


We had 
Commercial hip hop
Commercial jazz
But we were definitely missing
COMMERCIAL BALLET

And yet we're showered with brands using ballet for advertising (see)
And passionate girls- not out from big ballets schools- offering their very own approach to ballet (hey cutie)

But this girl has just taken it to a whole new level
The professional one

Definitely amazed
Definitely loving it

Back in studios

Just spent this morning in studios
Will do this every day this week
Re-shaping training sessions

How I feel?
Basically like this:


WHY DIDN'T I DO ANYTHING DURING ONE MONTH?
Why didn't I exercise at least a little everyday?
Fuck me!
It feels like I don't have any muscles left
At the end of this morning I couldn't even make a grand plié

(At least, I haven't fattened during Holidays...only positive feeling)

Dazed by Maddie


Photography Jeff Bark
Styling Robbie Spencer

In case you missed it:
 is the new international dance star at the moment

Apparently, all my American readers must already know her very well from her apparitions on reality TV show Dance Moms

But the rest of the world discovered her a few weeks ago when Sia's Chandelier music video was released

If you haven't seen it yet, check it below
Sia - Chandelier (Official Video)
Choreographer: Ryan Heffington

My attention was caught but I didn't like it as the rest of the world did:
"TIME Magazine lauded it as the “best dance routine of the year”. “Dazzling!” said Billboard. “Hauntingly beautiful,” gasped the Huffington Post."

Yet I was delighted to read this XX Dazed Digital article about Maddie and the video. The insight of the creative process was a delight to read

“I’m so used to doing modern and contemporary dances, but not like what I did in that video,” she explains. “The choreographer’s name is Ryan Heffington. The main direction Ryan and Sia were giving me was ‘crazy eyes’, to be overdramatic, and use my fingers in a really big way. It was a big stretch for me, because I’m used to doing competition dances, or being cheesy… you know, with a lot of technique. But when I did this video they said, 
‘I don’t care if your feet aren’t pointed, I don’t care if you feel weird inside, it looks amazing.’

I would love my dance to be that amazing when I feel weird inside

Got nothing in my brain


Back from Hollidays
Just to see Taylor Swift
Shaking it off
And dancing like she doesn't care
Dancing whatever
"I'm dancing on my own (dancing on my own)
I make the moves, well that's a goal (moves well that's a goal)
And that's what they don't see
Mmm-mmm
And that's what they don't see
Mmm-mmm"
