Joseph Altuzarra Can Grind and Pirouette

The dance floor at Red Egg after Altuzarra's Fall 2012 show got wild earlier this week. When we saw him last night at L’Wren Scott’s after-party at the Gramercy Terrace, where Questlove was warming up at the turntables and Mick Jagger was finishing dinner downstairs, we wondered whether he had a signature dance move up his sleeve.

“Oh my god,” Altuzarra said. “So many. All of my dance moves happen when I’m pretty drunk. I’m not a sober dancer at all. I think my signature dance move is that I’ll grind up and down, like high and low, but it goes way too low and then sometimes I can’t get back up.”

Nearby, Altuzarra’s boyfriend, Seth Weissman, disagreed.

“A pirouette,” he said. “He used to be a ballet dancer.” Altuzarra’s brother Charles confirmed. Joseph didn’t bust out the top-down grind or the pirouette last night, leaving early to prepare for a short trip to Europe. A little disappointing, but it gives us something to look forward to next season.
