Will B. Bell has choreographed a ballet dance to Adele's Love in the Dark, and it is mesmerizingly beautiful. Dancers DJ Smart and Zola Williams star in the video, shot by cinematographer Jose Omar Hernandez.

"My inspirations were my dancers DJ Smart and Zola Williams," Will told The Huffington Post. "As a choreographer, there is nothing better than a feeling of working with dancers who you can pull and learn from. From a creative perspective, I knew these two dancers were perfect for pushing my boundaries."

This comes after another dance with he choreographed with Zola and DJ Smart to Adele's All I Ask went viral earlier this year. “I chose Adele because there is something so pure, honest and genuine about her music that has captivated me for years," said Will. "Her music is poetry and I wanted to reflect that poetry through movement."
