Between Classes – 12.7.17

December 7, 2017

Don’t get caught at the barre not knowing the latest news! Between Classes is your ultimate guide to all things arts and pop culture. Every Thursday, you can expect a total rundown of the latest happenings and we’ll provide you with the best weekend plans. Let’s get started, shall we?

 

Our very own Nick Palmquist is getting noticed in a big way and it’s not just the dancers here at Steps on Broadway who are inspired by him. The #nickpalmquistchallenge on Instagram exploded amongst professional dancers all across the US. Even Jennifer Garner is a fan! Look here in this Dance Magazine Article to see what we mean!

 

Looking for the perfect gift to give your favorite dancer? You’re in luck! James Whiteside, Principle Dancer in the American Ballet Theatre has collaborated with the sneaker brand, KOIO, to create his own shoe and we’re obsessed. Perfect for the stage or the street!

 

Justin Peck directed and choreographed a music video for The National’s new song “Dark Side of the Gym.” He stars in it alongside Patricia Delgado. For this project, this real life couple dances in a gym filled with balloons and they are a dream to watch.

 

For your tiny dancers (Brought to you by The School at Steps):

Bundle up and head over to the Scandinavia House to listen to some wonderful, seasonal, Hans Christian Andersen stories be told. This event is this Saturday, December 9th at 11am and it is free!

 

Enjoy your weekend. See you next week!

Erika, Kelly, Talia, Johanna
