The Film

Ballet Now provides a rarely seen, unfiltered glimpse into the world of ballet and what it takes to create a one-of-kind dance extravaganza. 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?

Throughout the film, as Tiler faces the demands of an incredibly challenging production, she is driven to show young people the beauty, possibilities and freedom of dance and expression.  Paul Allen since his childhood has been an avid consumer of art and through his philanthropic work has generated programs specifically designed to provide youth access to art and dance.  Through the production of this film he and his entire team at Vulcan Productions hope to inspire a young and diverse audience to engage in the arts.

"When watching ballet, there are moments when you are transported to a place of transcendent and almost mystical beauty, where you are completely engulfed in the performance you are witnessing. Tiler Peck has provided me with several such moments in her storied career as a New York City Ballet principal and prima ballerina."
