“There is a freshness to the way she teaches; an entirely nonjudgmental celebration of the way it feels to move collectively. Many people drive all the way from upstate to take a class, many people have never danced before in their life and absolutely everyone feels like an old friend.

“Director Alex Eaton and I wanted to honor the Madonna reference in the video, so we pulled a lot from Madonna’s ‘90s tour doc Truth of Dare,” Kirke writes of the video in an email. “Since I’m nowhere near the dancer Madonna is, we brought on the wonderful choreographer/actress Angela Trimbur to create movement that felt organic, sexy, and playful, too.”

“Trimbur teaches classes founded on silliness—an ironic subversion of strictly focused ballet classes of yore. While gently mocking its source material, Trimbur’s attitude towards her low-stakes choreography is totally earnest and pure, with a true beginner mentality.

Instead of the anxiety-inducing cross-the-floors of my adolescence, here we’re told to walk across the room like an uptight dancer who needs to take a shit.”



“You already know Angela Trimbur – she’s a dancer, actress, writer, and dance instructor living and teaching in NY. Sharing her movement and choreography has brought many together including her virtual dance offerings during quarantine which attracted hundreds of thousands across the globe. Her unique classes allow everyone to get outside of their head and into a free spirited version of accessible dance.”
