Out today. Stephanie Gilmore, together with Quiksilver, released a pretty great little film series exploring the similarities between surfing and dance. But when I saw that Tiler Peck was part of the crew I couldn’t help myself, I had to share it. (As some of you know, I have a bit of a weakness for Ballet Dancers… and Belly Dances as a mater of fact.)
Stephanie sought out to capture the creativity, elegance and splendor while showing the power and beauty that both surfing and dance share. Featuring famed Choreographer Noemie LaFrance, world-renowned Ballerina Tiler Peck and Brooklyn Breakdancer Casandra ‘Defy’ Rivera, it’s pretty safe to say she managed that quite nicely.
“I once read that surfing a wave can be described as a dance performance; the wave is your stage and the sun your spotlight. When competing the majority of my drive comeS from the performance. I want to be powerful, but perform with style and grace, similar to that of a dancer.” shared Stephanie.
Enjoy! And check out the rest of the films here.
