Matisse posted behind the scenes footage working with famed choreographer Frank Gatson and her two dancers for her debut single ‘Better Than Her’ in preparation for upcoming shows.
“I’m here at the wonderful Alvin Ailey studios, which is a very famous dance studio here in New York,” she said. “I’m here rehearsing with Frank Gatson, who is an amazing choreographer and a couple of dancers.”
“It’s a real girl anthem,” Matisse said of ‘Better Than Her’. “We wanted to be sure we had girl dancers behind me. We wanted to have a lot of strength in the choreography, a lot of energy.” She added that “it’s not even as much about the choreography as it is interpreting the words and getting the gestures to be right.”
“These choreography rehearsal days are definitely very grueling,” Matisse confessed. “We’re here usually from 1 to 3 in the afternoon and then back again from 6 until 11. You’re definitely very tired at the end of the day and hungry.”
The video clip at her MySpace has since been removed.
