Dancers people can relate to

"The idea that ballet is a white art is absurd and shocking, and it’s gone on for too long. Nothing would make me happier than having a company that reflects society, to have dancers onstage that people can relate to."
Benjamin Millepied in Pointe Magazine

Do you mean
  • black ballerinas
  • big ballerinas
  • tall ballerinas
  • mature ballerinas?
If you make it, this would be a big change!
This would be a revolution?

You're my friend 

When you're flame is dancing 
That's when you're happy

We'll dance together
And I'll trust you in the dark

Because we're friends forever

Plagiarism or inspiration?

Always a thin line, isn't it?
Anne Marsen is claiming in Pharell loves my work that Pharell Williams' Happy music video was inspired by her work
And now, of course, everyone is talking about plagiarism

It does not seem to ba a scandal here
but the polemic gave me the opportunity to discover Anne Marsen's work and

As seen on her website
"Girl Walk // All Day is a feature-length dance music video and tale of urban exploration that follows three dancers across New York City. They turn the city's sidewalks, parks, and architecture into an evolving stage as they spread their joy of movement.

The film is about self-discovery and love, and it's a tale about finding community and vitality in shared public spaces. The idea for this project emerged from our desire to expand the boundaries of the single-track music video, to an epic music film.

Girl Walk // All Day is set to All Day, the album by mash-up musician Gregg Gillis (aka Girl Talk)."
