Dancer and model Jason Beitel and John Pizzolato, co-founder of international playground, have been friends since their late teens. Both originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Jason moved to Los Angeles to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a professional dancer at the young age of 18. He has had quite the career since then from dancing on five world tours with Kylie Minogue, working as a model for brands such as Longchamp, Clarks, and Harrods (and now international playground:) as well as commercials and music videos for Kylie Minogue, Florence + the machine, and Fiona Apple. He is currently starring in Cirque du Soleil's Beatles' LOVE show at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. We traveled just outside Las Vegas to shoot and chat in the middle of nowhere with Jason and photographer Ivan Avila to this spot we ended up getting thrown out of, we think it was MaryMe-Jimmy Paul skirt that drove them crazy, regardless, we think Jason looks gorgeous in everything.
