It's Time for an Epic Dance-in-Movies Supercut
In a midweek slump? We were, too—until we discovered this compilation of Hollywood's best dance sequences, that is.
Yes, we posted a similar supercut a while ago. But this one seems a little more comprehensive: It includes clips from 73—seventy-three—movies.
The classic Dirty Dancing and Grease and West Side Story routines are all well-represented, of course. But the fabulous Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion pas de trois and Kevin James' so-uncomfortable-they're-amazing Hitch dance moves also make it in there. (We're especially excited about the airtime given to one of our all-time favorites, Fosse's "Rich Man's Frug" from Sweet Charity.)
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.

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.
