LADY GAGA wants you to take note of her ballet background in new fashion film, YOÜ AND I

What’s hard to miss from the video and the credits is the glaring mistake of not involving a choreographer. At least a little coaching on technique if you’re gonna slip on the shoes!

IT’S ABOUT TIME

If you are a dancer, or support dancers, please share this.

Dancers’ Alliance and AFTRA have partnered up in a historic effort to acheive a fair union contract for dancers and other performers in music videos.

This video marks the launch of the “It’s About Time” campaign, where we will release videos of some the most influential people in the dance community sharing their thoughts on why this contract is crucial, and why we need the support of the dance community.

Participants include choreographer/director Brian Friedman, former Pussycat Doll Carmit Bachar, comedian Affion Crockett, and established dancers such as Bryan Tanaka, Randi Kemper, Shaun Evaristo, and many more. 

Stay tuned to hear what they have to say, and share their stories with your friends by tweeting, sharing, blogging and emailing these campaign videos.

30 Years of Music Videos. It’s About Time.
