This Dance Film Shot in a Bubble Captures Just How We Feel Right About Now

Feeling a bit...trapped lately? Us, too.

This short dance film by Los Angeles dancer/filmmaker Nadav Heyman, titled "as·phyx·i·a·tion," seems like it was created for the social-distancing era. As Heyman tells us, "It's about the struggle of aloneness, and the relationship between mental and physical isolation."

Created and filmed during an artistic residency in Thailand last year, the film won the Audience Award at the Verve Dance Film Festival in Salt Lake City in October.

More Than Just a Studio

There's a special connection between dancers and the studios where they spend countless hours—even years—developing their craft.

Check out these college dance studios—and their sweeping views, eye-catching design, and industry-leading Harlequin floors—that are soon to become a home away from home to the class of 2025.
