When I crush on a dancer, I crush hard. I look at every Facebook photo I can find, I stalk Twitter and Instagram, and I stay up way too late YouTube-ing the dancer until my eyes start to close.
Thank goodness for the internet, right?
Here’s who I can’t stop talking about right now…
Jeremy Hudson: He’s easily the most-booked dancer in Hollywood. Jeremy, when was the last time you had to audition for something? Right, never. Because people love you and you direct book for superstars like it’s nothing. Jeremy spent a long time dancing with Lady Gaga, and now he’s branching out and I’m on the edge of my little seat waiting to see what his next major move will be.
Juliet Doherty: She’s the love of my life. At just 16, this ballerina is wise beyond her years, and I’m so happy she’s getting exceptional training at the San Francisco Ballet School. Keep an eye out, people—this one’s going places. Places that probably come with the title “principal.”
The Revolting Children from Matilda: It took me far too long to finally see this critically-acclaimed Broadway musical. Oh, you haven’t seen it? Go now. I’ll wait here while you purchase your tickets. Oh, tickets are “too expensive?” I don’t care. Buy them. Figure it out. You’re going to love this show, I promise. The kids are so darn talented, and the “big kids” are equally endearing. I sobbed during “When I Grow Up,” and again during the curtain call, as I always do.
Jayci Kalb: Classically beautiful, exceptionally talented. Jayci’s the total package.
The “Waltz of the Snowflakes” scene from The Nutcracker: Halloween is a thing of the past, which means we can officially start talking nonstop about sugar plums! No matter how many times I see it—or just hear the music—the snow scene gives me chills.
Which dancers, groups or shows are you obsessed with right now? Let me know in the comments—maybe you’ll find your dance crush in an upcoming issue of DS!
