Ballet Dancers Do Their Hardest Moves in Slow Motion

The Wash­ing­ton Post went behind the scenes at the Wash­ing­ton Bal­let to get “six pro­fes­sion­al dancers to show off the most dif­fi­cult moves in their reper­toire.” If this intrigues you, you can turn back to a 2012 post where we fea­tured Mari­na Kan­no and Gia­co­mo Bevilaqua, both from the Staats­bal­lett Berlin, per­form­ing sev­er­al jumps, each cap­tured in slow motion at 1000 frames per sec­ond. And it’s all set to Radiohead’s “Every­thing In Its Right Place.” Enjoy.
