The Making Of The “Controversial” Dance Video For Sia’s Elastic Heart

“The Story Behind Sia’s Elastic Heart Music Video! | The Edge”

Sia’s Elastic Heart music video features Maddie Ziegler and Shia LaBeouf in a dance/acting scenario choreographed by Ryan Heffington that’s quite engaging.

However a lot of people got worked up and projected their own issues onto an ambiguous narrative. That happens but it also seemed like a big overreaction.

The above episode of DanceOn’s The Edge, the first for Season 2, goes into the making of the video reveals a lot of solid artistic impetus behind it. Honestly, it’s just a more interesting piece of art connected to a song than you usually see but the controversy was all in the viewers’ mind.
