Watch These Ballet Dancers Spin and Leap Through Harlem in This Mesmerizing Video


Ballet is gorgeous enough when it’s performed on stage, but when dancers take their moves to the gorgeous backdrop of New York City, prepare to be truly mesmerized. Case in point (or should we say “on pointe”): the Dance Theatre of Harlem’s breathtaking “Dancing Through Harlem” video, which features dancers leaping and pirouetting through the empty city streets.

Released in August, the video follows the troupe of dancers through Harlem, from a subway station to a riverside path, as they float through a routine that seems to defy gravity. Dance Theatre of Harlem says it uses “the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture,” and the result in this short video is graceful, calming, and hypnotizing all at once.

Check it out for yourself, and if you want more ballet, take a look at this gorgeous “Swans For Relief” routine featuring Misty Copeland that helped to raise money for struggling dance companies.
