The premiere date for "city.ballet," New York City Ballet's documentary web series, has been announced: It'll air on AOL On beginning November 4th.
The more we hear about this new show, the more interesting it sounds. NYCB will retain artistic control of the project, for example. They want to distance it from the high-drama capers of reality shows like "Breaking Pointe." Footage was shot by Zero Point Zero, the group behind the slick aesthetic of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations."
While we're waiting to see how it all turns out, AOL On has released another teaser video, "The Shoes," which goes inside NYCB's famous pointe shoe room (and includes some beautiful slo-mo shots of the dancers' feet in action). Take a look—and stay tuned: Pointe will have more insider coverage of "city.ballet" as the premiere date nears.
