James Clouser, composer, choreographer, premier danseur and Ballet Master of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, performs on the piano and dances to music of his own composition.
Clouser is seen coaching N.Y. City Opera Ballet dancers Sandra Balestracci and Alexandra Nadal in one of his works, a fusion of classical and modern dance to music by Bach. He analyzes his choice of steps and movements and his desire to dance sometimes to the rhythm and sometimes against it. Clouser also performs, with Nadal, a scene from his work "Recurrence", about young lovers.
