While Darren Aronofsky provided audiences with a nightmarish vision of what it means to be dancer in "Black Swan," in real life, ballet is a mix of collaboration, dedication and lots of sweat. And viewers will see all of that come together in the documentary "Ballet 422," premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival.

While Darren Aronofsky provided audiences with a nightmarish vision of what it means to be dancer in "Black Swan," in real life, ballet is a mix of collaboration, dedication and lots of sweat. And viewers will see all of that come together in the documentary "Ballet 422," premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Directed by Jody Lee Lipes (who was the DP on Playlist fave "Martha Marcy May Marlene"), the film follows up-and-coming choreographer Justin Peck — from the first rehearsal to world premiere — as he collaborates with musicians, lighting designers, costume designers and his fellow dancers to create the latest New York City Ballet production. And as you'll see in this exclusive clip, even in the rehearsal process, early signs of magic can be found.

"Ballet 422" premieres at Tribeca on Saturday, April 19th at 9 PM at SVA Theatre 1. Watch below.
