As one of the principal dancers with the New York City Ballet, Tiler Peck is only 4 feet 10 inches tall and 29 years old (at the time). She’s the first women ever asked to curate the Ballet NOW program at The Music Center in Los Angeles, CA in 2018. Peck was also the director and lead performer, in addition to a varied cast of dancers with different styles. As the camera chases her around the stage during rehearsals or while she tries to nail down her own routines, it all leads to the night of the show. There’s hip-hop, clapping, tap dancing, and a comedic performance with a live orchestra. As with many artistic endeavors, it somehow comes together in the end through all the stress to make a success. This is not like the other documentaries I’ve seen about ballet, but just as interesting to watch especially for someone who has no rhythm and has one move on the dance floor.
