Benjamin Millepied
"The exhilarating quality of moving in space is what animated me as a kid, and it's still what animates me today."
Benjamin Millepied is a celebrated French dancer and choreographer who, in 2014, was appointed the Director of Dance at the Paris Opera Ballet. Before his appointment, he worked with composers such as Nico Muhly and Philip Glass, as well as with filmmaker Darren Aronofsky on the 2010 ballet thriller Black Swan.
