Diesel wants you to dance, preferably while wearing their jeans. To advertise their Jogg jeans collection (an ultra-flexible jean-jersey hybrid), the brand has created an exciting montage of world-class dancers, strutting their stuff. The A-Z of Dance features the popular styles you know (twerking) and a bunch you’ve never heard of (Memphis Jookin? Whine?). The video will inspire you to bust a move, though if you want to look anything like the performers in this spot, you’re going to need more than a new pair of pants.

While many photo innovators cease developing outside their fait accompli, Bertil Nilsson clearly illustrates with his phosphorescent images that is evidently not the case. As the intense lens aficionado propels brilliantly beyond mere accomplishments to bloom into a fearless, funky, and futuristic artesian who demands all eyes on his work with a click of the shutter. Many mouths are left agape as viewers are often transfixed at the magnitude of Nilsson’s talents as it washes deliciously and ever so coolly across our spirits.

Pop Locking vs Ballet Collaboration.


Spike Jonze arranged this collaboration of the world’s greatest cellist with unique hiphop dancer Lil Buck.  This is what Jonze wrote: “The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck’s own creation and unlike anything I’ve seen. Hope you enjoy.” –Spike Jonze.

Dancing People.


My primary job consists of making people dance.  So obviously seeing people dance is something I thoroughly enjoy.  But this collection I stumbled across by multiple photographers of the most popular styles of dancing, totally blows my mind, check the method of these photos of dancers doing what they do best.
