Great contemporary choreographers and soulful singer-songwriters have always made for a perfect match. That's why we were thrilled when we found out "SYTYCD" and "Dance Moms" choreographer Kristin McQuaid created the music video for "Light the Sky," a hit single from "America's Got Talent" winner Grace VanderWaal.

A lot of ballet men play around a little in pointe shoes—to get a feel for what their partners are experiencing, or just because they're curious.

But Houston Ballet's Hayden Stark, Derek Dunn, and Daniel Durrett aren't playing.

They're SLAYING. SO. HARD.

It's finally summer, which means you're probably spending as many long days outside in the sun as you are in the studio. You might think a quick mist of SPF 30 will do the trick, but there's a lot more to that number—and to sunscreen, in general. Here, we break down the sunscreen basics to keep your sunkissed skin safe.

We already know that Misty Copeland—who needs no introduction, but OK: American Ballet Theatre principal, trailblazing role model, all-around superstar—is an excellent dance show judge. Her turn on the "So You Think You Can Dance" judging panel back in Season 11 impressed dance fans everywhere. Obviously any professional dancer is going to have a leg up (sorry) when it comes to critiquing technique, but Copeland's feedback on "SYT" was particularly smart, incisive, and illuminating. (Remember when she told Rudy to think of his legs as tree trunks rooted in the ground, so he could better hold up the "flowers"—aka his partner?)

That's why we're very excited to report that Copeland is putting her judges' hat on again, this time for NBC's "World of Dance."

Serious question: Is there anything Maddie Ziegler can't do? Serious answer: Nope. Case in point? Her big screen debut as Christina in the new movie, The Book of Henry. But even more exciting than seeing Maddie in a movie theater is the fact that we get to see her dance, too! The trailer hinted at a dance scene, and you guys, it's better than we could've ever imagined.

You guys, I feel so sorry for the "World of Dance" judges: Their job is so freaking tough. Every single one of the acts from last night's episode was absolutely amazing. How could you even THINK about picking a winner in each of the night's four duels?! Luckily, those hard choices are up to the judges, and we just get to enjoy the jaw-dropping dancing.
