Exclusive Black Swan Photos!

March 3, 2011

Like everyone else in the dance world, we can’t get enough of Black Swan. We were thrilled when Natalie Portman took home her first Academy Award for her portrayal of fragile (but secretly fierce) Nina Sayers. And we can’t wait for the DVD release at the end of March—keep an eye on dancespirit.com/ for your chance to win a copy! Below, we’ve got exclusive photos of Portman, New York City Ballet principal and Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied, director Darren Aronofsky and more. Enjoy!
