A tWitch-tastic Surprise for Ellen
Let's face it: Ellen's got swag.
The friendship between tWitch and Ellen is kind of adorable. We've been in love with the pair ever since Ellen made her surprise "SYTYCD" appearance, filling in for the injured Alex Wong to perform that infamous Nappytabs routine.
They need a cute friend name like tWitchison. tWitchellen? Eh...we'll go with it.
On this season of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," we've gotten to see lots of tWitchellen, because tWitch was a recurring guest DJ on the show. On Wednesday, Ellen took a moment to thank him for bringing joy and dance to the show week-after-week, and to tell him how much she loves him (awwww!!). And tWitch had a little thank you for Ellen, as well. Naturally, it came in the form of dance:
Recognize some of your favorite "SYT" alums? It was the perfect gift for Ellen, given her love for "So You Think You Can Dance." Plus, it came on the morning of the show's Season 11 premiere! Well timed, tWitch, well timed.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is some SERIOUS #goals. Her strength and power onstage borders on superhuman. But what's extra magical about Mearns is that she really puts in the fitness and cross-training work outside of the rehearsal studio. And she's overcome her fair share of injuries. Which is why she was the perfect source for Vogue's latest ballet fitness story.
Well, this brings class videos to a whole new level! Choreographer Phil Wright and dancer Ashley Liai have been together eight-plus years, but she was still in total shock when he proposed to her mid-dance at Millennium Dance Complex earlier this week. Why? Well, the whole thing was unbelievably perfect.
In the dance industry, dancers don't always have a say in what they wear on their bodies. This can get tricky if you're asked to wear something that compromises your own personal values. So what should you do if you find yourself in this sticky situation? We sat down for a Q&A with "Dancing with the Stars" alumn Ashly Costa to answer that very question. Here's what she had to say about the options dancers have surrounding questionable costumes.
