Laurie Hernandez Visited NYCB—and It’s the Best Thing Ever

Olympic gymnast, recent Mirror Ball Trophy winner and all-around adorable human Laurie Hernandez has gifted us the most AMAZING holiday present of all time: a video of her stopping by New York City Ballet to learn a dance from The Nutcracker. 🙌

The video, shot by Teen Vogue, shows principal Lauren Lovette leading Hernandez in a barre warmup (along with other NYCB dancers) and then teaching Hernandez a bit of the Sugarplum Fairy’s variation. Obviously Hernandez’s technique isn’t ballerina-worthy, but she’s a great student and super eager to learnit’s clear her passion for dance is 💯. (She also SLAYS the #studiostyle game. Polka dotted tights?! Yes, Laurie, YES.)

Check out the full video of her visit below, including her final solo performance on the iconic David H. Koch stage at Lincoln Center. It’s the gift that keeps on givingreplay to your heart’s desire. (Seriously, it never gets old.)
