Tim Milgram's Transfixing 'Hanging On' Video Spotlights 16-Year-Old Dancer: Exclusive Premiere

Milgram is known for his viral dance videos -- including visuals set to Beyonce's "Run the World (Girls)" and Ellie Goulding's "Hanging On" -- and the new vid is an emotionally charged dance performance across an empty library. Bay's soft vocals are a melancholy soundtrack for the two-minute video, featuring Kester's mesmerizing twirls and elegant floor contortions.

Kester gained attention last year for her viral dance video for Elliot Moss' "Slip," a dance duet filmed in a train station, which she choreographed with fellow dancer Phillip Chbeeb.
