Inside Dance

Beautiful moment...
From Alex Wong:
😱 300 DANCERS showed up for ballet class this morning in Times Square in front of Good Morning America!! I am so proud and overwhelmed with the support from the dance community standing together on such an important issue. I almost didn’t start dancing when I was young - I constantly said “dancing is only for girls”. It took 2 years for my parents to convince me and I’m so glad I did. I hope the next generation of boys don’t have to deal with the same type of bullying a lot of us had to deal with - we will not stand for it! #boysdancetoo

The bar for bendiness seems to get higher every year. Here are some safe tips to share with your students.

4 Ways to Develop Stage Presence—in Class

Great way to think about stage presence! When Elizabeth Ferrell was a young student, Suzanne Farrell told her something she'll never forget. "She said she was going to paint eyeballs on my eyelids," Ferrell says, laughing, "because I was looking down all the time." Ferrell now uses the same phrase when she teaches at American Ballet Theatr
