Capezio just released its latest dance video, Dance in You, featuring young starlet and Capezio Ambassador Maddie Ziegler. Directed by Bon Duke and choreographed by Troy Schumacher, corps de ballet of the New York City Ballet, the video features Maddie at the barre, striking in dark Capezio apparel and fishnets, in contrast to her pink clad classmates. As they begin their barre exercises, Maddie breaks out into her own seemingly improvised movement, expressing inner freedom and the joy that dance brings. Slowly her classmates join in on the celebration of dance.
Designed to acknowledge the grace and heritage of ballet, while inspiring young dancers to find their own beat, Dance in You has already been viewed almost 100,000 times since being released Tuesday, and is sure to be popular not just for its star but also its inspirational message.
Director Bon Duke told Dance Informa that he chose Maddie to be a “feeling force that was going to be the heartbeat and contagious energy amongst the group,”and that Maddie was “so humble and strived to perform 100 percent each take.”
Capezio continues to innovate and embrace the new generation of dancers, styles and trends, while staying true to their traditions and their brand which is almost as synonymous with dance as the humble plié. To see Maddie’s favorite Capezio items right now, visit Capezio.com/dance-in-you.
