Artistry in such young kids like this is incredible! 

"You can be a safe dancer and perform very competently, but you will never be really captivating unless you learn to work through your fear." American Ballet Theatre soloist Isabella Boylston on why dancers can’t afford to be afraid—and how she’s conquered her own anxieties:

dance-4-joy asked:
what college do you go to? i'm applying to colleges also for dance and i want to know your opinions of your college

I’m not sure if I ever replied to this, but I go to George Washington University. Decide if dance is something that you want to do in conjunction with another major, or if you want it to be your focus. If you want it to be your focus, look for schools where you have to audition to be accepted into the program. While this is more stressful, you know that the training will be more intensive. There are a lot of great schools in NY, CA, and all over the country. For you, decide what level of dedication and what style of dance you want to focus on! Also if you want to learn and experience choreography, just focus on your technique and performance ability, or both.

Anonymous asked:
I really want an answer to this question from an actual trained dancer, since I'm just an at-home viewer of so you think, lol. Who do you think has the best technique: Allison Holker, Jaimie Goodwin, Jordan Casanova, or Melanie Moore?

I’m gunna be honest, I don’t watch SYTYCD very often. I do know that I LOVE Melanie Moore, but that her BALLET technique/ability isn’t the strongest ever. I’ve heard wonderful things about Allison Holker. I’m sure every single one of these dancers has amazing technique, but like everyone, has different strengths and weaknesses. I wouldn’t compare them in that way.
