On Friday night I went to see Swan Lake: A Contemporary Rock Rendition. It was a Silverlake Contemporary Ballet production directed by Sheena Sisk. It was a rock and roll explosion of awesome music, brilliant choreography and spectacular dancing. The week before, I got invited to one of the rehearsals by one of the choreographers, Sabrina Phillip. Sabrina is a close friend and she never ceases to amaze me with her talents. (She also choreographed the Clear video.) Now she’s opened the doors for me to meet a small cadre of passionate dancers who love what they do and I found the whole thing truly inspiring. I present to you a collection of behind the scenes rehearsal images I grabbed while all the talented people honed the performance.
As I write this there are still two performances left of this fantastic show today. Drop what you’re doing and go.
