The exact opposite of all feels right now but I could probably watch it all day. #opposites

#SpeakingInDance | “Odessa,” a new work choreographed for @nycballet by #AlexeiRatmansky, will premiere on May 4. In this portion of the #ballet, shown here in an exclusive preview, the atmosphere has to be moody. “It’s not about trying to hit the steps, but to have this misty feeling,” the dancer @saramearns said of her melancholy solo. Usually she dances like she’s running out of a burning building: wild and passionate, with dazzling abandon. “I was trying to figure out what this solo is and Alexei said, 'Just do it as if you’re just waking up in the morning and by the time you get to the front you’re awake.’ ” But the piece is still full of special touches, like a body roll that curls her backward and forward until she’s stretched over a straight leg. It doesn’t matter what Alexei asks of her; she trusts him, she said. “He wants me to look my best and he knows I can do it," she told the @nytimes writer @giadk. “He’s asking such insane things from me. I want to be that wild, crazy person out there for him.” @ezrahurwitz made this video for our weekly series exploring the world of #dance.
