A still from Gifford and Dalca's video, "A Day of Grace with Boston Ballet."

Today's Dance Glance is truly a glance of dance from a bird's-eye view—brought to you by Boston Ballet and two techies from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. In short, professor David Gifford and grad student Adrian Dalca positioned a few small cameras above Boston Ballet's Studio 7 to record a full day of class and rehearsals. (Read more about the project here.) The video, "A Day of Grace with Boston Ballet" will be shown this Saturday evening at Boston Ballet's Night of Stars gala along with performances of George Balanchine's Serenade and Jorma Elo's Plan to B. Watch the video here (or below) and keep your eyes peeled for that super cool glimpse of Serenade
