Dance On Screen
1. Jose Agudo & Zfin Malta National Dance Company - Selah
This 13 minute film was shot entirely in Malta and has a deeply spiritual feel. Created by Jose Agudo and Matthew Zacchary Beckett, it features five dancers from Zfin Malta National Dance Company.
2. La Patin Libre - Vertical
Filmed by Dance Umbrella in 2018, La Patin Libre are a troupe of ice skating contemporary dancers. What could be more exciting?!
Under 5 Minutes
3. Russell Maliphant - Act of Love
This may be a commercial for a Japanese condom brand (don't worry, it's safe for work), but it is also a stunning piece of choreography. Based on animal courtship rituals, it is a one of those adverts that just makes you smile. Enjoy!

Created In Quarantine
5. San Francisco Ballet & New York City Ballet - Sequentia
