Yo-Yo Ma, cellist and Lil Buck, dancer, improvise a new ballet

The world-famous cellist in a suit and a young man in a baseball cap make an unlikely pair. Until the music starts playing and the young man starts slowly moving, his body bending and collapsing to the mournful tune. A friend of Yo-Yo Ma’s, the cellist, caught Lil Buck dancing on YouTube and paired the two for a collaboration for an event to bring the arts back into schools.
