Benjamin Millepied is dipping his toes into New York Fashion Week—sort of. The artistic director of L.A. Dance Project recently worked with fashion brand Rag & Bone to create a dance-focused short film that replaced the brand's traditional runway show. "Why Can't We Get Along" stars actors Kate Mara and Ansel Elgort, and it also includes some familiar dance faces. Modeling Rag & Bone's Spring 2018 collection, you'll find eight members of American Ballet Theatre, three Hiplet dancers, three members of Bullettrun Parkour and YouTube dance star Kandi Reign. The totally trippy video also features music by Radiohead's Thom Yorke, and begins with Kate Mara stumbling around an abandoned warehouse as the dancers move around her.-Dance Magazine
From Mani García-Lesy: I am very excited to announce that I was accepted to present about our parkour research study that is based on interviews with so many of you from our parkour community in NYC: The title of my talk is: "On the Psychology of Parkour: Qualitative interviews with emerging adults in the parkour community"
I will be presenting with our friends from the St. John's University Liaison for Emerging Adults Program (LEAP), led by Dr. Andrea Bergman. We will be presenting in Washington, D.C. at the Society for the Study of Emerging Adults in November,2017.
We will share more information when we have it. Thanks to everyone for helping make this possible!
