Ballet Now

Featuring New York City Ballet's Prima Ballerina Tiler Peck - the first ever woman to be asked to curate The Music Center's famed BalletNOW program - and a diverse cast of world-class dancers from around the globe, the film follows Tiler as she tries to execute her groundbreaking vision of mashing together the worlds of tap, hip-hop, ballet and even clown artistry. With less than a week to pull it all off, Tiler faces the mounting pressures of not only dancing in multiple pieces but also producing and directing this high profile event. The success of the performances rests squarely on her shoulders. Will she pull it off?

Beyond Moving

Follow the remarkable journey of Siphe November, who left his small township in South Africa to follow his dreams at Canada’s National Ballet School. The young dancer pushes the limits of his talents, tackles an intensive training regimen and soars on stages around the world—all the while navigating family relationships back home, reflecting on what it means to be a Black ballet dancer and figuring out how to give back to the community that raised him. Beyond Moving is an uplifting and inspiring story that reveals deeply personal pulses of family, prejudice, expectation, loss and resilience.
