New York’s Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has utilized the stunning composition work by Academy Award -nominated composer Nicholas Britell for Moonlight to create a dance that is just as beautiful as the music. 

The short piece was choreographed by the theater’s artistic director Robert Battle, and features dancers Jamar Roberts, Christopher Taylor and Jeremy T. Villas. The tribute was directed by Anna Rose Holmer, who is most well- known for her film The Fits

Moonlight has received eight Oscar nominations this year, and has won a Golden Globe for Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama. 

Take a look at the piece below.
