Cloud and Victory's Instagram Is Seriously Getting Us Through This Week
This week was often a contentious time to be on social media. Thankfully, Cloud and Victory's Instagram exists. The Singapore-based dancewear line edits photos and videos of classical ballet works with their own captions, and the results are hilarious.
First of all, there's the pizza series, inspired by their popular "Will Plié For Pizza" shirt. Trying to extend the line of your port de bras? Think about #reachingforpizza. We're pretty sure you'll see results.
Then there's this series of clips from famous ballet scenes, dubbed with what those characters are really thinking. These will have you cackling—but also appreciating the always spot-on Royal Ballet and Mariinsky dancers featured. Maybe Cloud and Victory's reinterpretation of these scenes will even give you inspiration for those character parts you just can't seem to get in to.
And when the week starts to feel never-ending, Cloud and Victory always feels our pain.
Congrats, everyone. We made it to Friday.
By the Sunday evening of a long convention weekend, you can expect to be thoroughly exhausted and a little sore. But you shouldn't leave the hotel ballroom actually hurt. Although conventions can be filled with magical opportunities, the potential for injury is higher than usual.
Keep your body safe: Watch out for these four common hazards.
For a Broadway dancer, few opportunities are more exciting than being part of the creation of an original show. But if that show goes on to become wildly successful, who reaps the benefits? Thanks to a new deal between Actors' Equity Association and The Broadway League, performers involved in a production's development will now receive their own cut of the earnings.
Jellicle obsessives, rejoice: There's a new video out that offers a (surprisingly substantive) look at the dancing that went down on the set of the new CATS movie.
