Online subscription streaming service Hulu has slated Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Cantor‘s latest feature-length documentary Ballet Now for a late July premiere.

The 74-minute doc, which is executive produced by Paul G. Allen and The Handmaid’s Tale’s Elisabeth Moss, provides an unfiltered look into the world of ballet through the eyes of New York City Ballet’s prima ballerina Tiler Peck – the first woman to curate The Music Center’s famed Ballet NOW program in Los Angeles.

The feature-length film follows Peck as she attempts to produce and direct a three-night performance that fuses together the genres of tap, hip-hop, ballet and clown artistry, with a diverse cast of world-class dancers and choreographers, in under a week.

Ballet Now is produced by Allen’s Vulcan Productions and Cantor’s Stick Figure Studios, with Alex Blavatnik and Olga Blavatnik listed as executive producers alongside both Moss and Allen.

Steven Cantor, Jamie Schutz, Jannat Gargi, Tiler Peck and Victoria Morris are producers.

Dogwoof serves as the film’s sales agent.

Ballet Now will have its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on Monday (June 4) before making its debut across digital streaming giant Hulu on July 20.
