Series creator Moira Walley-Beckett and choreographer Ethan Stiefel collaborated on a 13-minute original ballet for the series. "The narrative for the ballet was obviously created by Moira, which was following a woman going through these different phases of growing and becoming empowered," Stiefel explained. "I had to create something that works not only as a ballet that looks good and is effective on camera, but also works within the context of the actual episode and what else is happening while that ballet is being performed. And what's really fantastic is that we had a fantastic composer (Adam Crystal), create an original score for Dakini because the producers wanted something completely fresh, completely new."
"The ballet is essentially about a young lady finding her own feet and becoming self empowered," said Crystal. "In the four movement piece we explore her journey from when she's being born, to childhood and adolescence as she builds relationships. Then we go into sexual exploration and then from that point she is basically finding her sense of self."
