Video of the Day: The Beatles Meets Ballet


Congrats to the Trey McIntyre Project, which just finished its first season as a full-time dance company. We interviewed Trey about his Co. — which is based in Boise, Idaho — back in December. He told us, “Some days it’s really difficult. But I think we’ve benefited from creating this company slowly and doing three summers — I learned a lot from that process. I’m really making space for my role as creative director of the company, because when there’s so much other stuff to get done, it’s very easy for that role to get sidelined — and how absurd is that?”

The snippet above is from last summer’s Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts; it was TMP’s first official performance as a full-time company. Find tour dates for the upcoming season after the jump.
