But her latest Instagram video shows another side of her dancing—and gives us all the feels:

Yep, that Peck's home studio in California (which just happens to be owned by her mom) and one of her mom's adorable students. (Bravo, little girl, for a solid attempt at keeping up with Peck. We would have given up by the end, too.)

Akram Khan loves to dive into genres he is unfamiliar with. While his own movement vocabulary is a hybrid of kathak and contemporary dance, he has choreographed a new Giselle for English National Ballet, collaborated with flamenco artist Israel Galván and made a dance theater duet with film star Juliette Binoche.
