Discipline: Communication

Ballet is much more than just the stage performance. The dancers at the National Ballet are like pop stars. The site shows the world behind the Ballet, getting up close with the dancers and choreographers. You can almost count the eyelashes on the massive background photos by Angela Stirling. The stories reveal what motivates the dancers and choreographers.
The site is made up of carefully composed areas. The word pictures slide under the background photos, while the dark areas containing information slide over the top of them. As a result, scrolling almost creates an animation.
