The Russian news media continues to follow Skylar Brandt and Julian MacKay as they conclude filming the competition phase of the immensely popular Big Ballet Official TV series which will air all over Russia in January.
In this video (at 1:25), the two prepare to dance Sebastian Bertaud's Renaissance which he choreographed for the Paris Opera Ballet's 2016-2017 season. The dazzling costumes came from the imagination of Balmain's head designer, Olivier Rousteing. According to the article accompanying the video below, the costumes are so heavily jeweled that they were transported from Paris in a safe.
But wait a minute! Are Skylar's parents sitting in the judges' chairs?! What?! 😹
Below is a video clip from POB's performance of Renaissance featuring Dorothée Gilbert.
