Alex in Wonderland Comes to L.A.
Choreographer Debbie Allen’s latest hit musical, Alex in Wonderland has been getting rave reviews since its premiere at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and now’s your chance to be a part of the lively action. The show is a modern-day take on the beloved Alice in Wonderland. But this time around, forget Alice! Alex is the lead boy here, and he embarks on a fairy tale journey (with two of his pals, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood) after falling asleep in his town library.
The show sold out at the Kennedy Center so there’s no doubt it’ll remain a huge hit on the West Coast.

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.
