Forgive me, dance-on-television fans, for I have sinned: While I never miss an episode of "So You Think You Can Dance" or "Dance Moms" (shameful, I know, but I watch it for the kids, I swear!), I admit that I just can't get myself hooked on "Dancing With the Stars." I respect it, I think the pros are absolute masters at what they do and I'd love to shimmy my way into one of Brooke Burke's hosting dresses. For some reason, though, it's just not on my must-see TV list.
But I will tune into a "DWTS" results show when my Twitter feed tells me to, and this week the World o' Twitter practically begged me to set my DVR accordingly.
For tWitch and Allison, of course.
The world—myself included—just cannot get enough of this lovestruck duo.
tWitch and Allison, showing the world what REAL onstage chemistry looks like!
They performed with artist Lindsey Stirling this week as part of the Macy's Stars of Dance series, and it was, expectedly, fantastic. The music, the "I'm going to run and I know you're going to be there to catch me" choreography, the real-life chemistry...that's what reality TV is made for, people.
It gets really good right around the 1:28 mark when Allison's contemporary and tWitch's hip hop fuse into one style (hip-temporary? contempo-hop?) and together they just totally break it down.
Check out the full performance here:
Nearly 80,000 dance-loving Instagram followers can't be wrong: Quinn Starner is one to watch. And what's just as impressive as the 15-year-old's rabid online following is her ever-growing list of competition accolades. Quinn, who trains at Indiana Ballet Conservatory and Stars Dance Company, been named first runner-up at The Dance Awards for two years in a row (as a junior and a teen); was the 2016 West Coast Dance Explosion Teen National Champion; earned first place in contemporary and third place in the classical division at Youth America Grand Prix Regionals in Pittsburgh last year; has won the Grand Prix Award at ADC|IBC; and was a gold medalist at World Ballet Art Competition Grand Prix. Plus, she made it to the Academy round on last year's "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation," and has performed as Clara in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Here's what Quinn has to say about her favorite songs, teachers, and career highlights.
Want a chance to get personally involved in the HOTLY anticipated TV show "World of Dance"? Of course you do. That's why J. Lo. and the rest of the "WOD" team have launched an interactive version of the upcoming NBC series that lets Snapchatters get in on the action.
On Saturday morning, Russell Horning—aka 15-year-old Instagram king @i_got_barzz—was already kind of famous. His admittedly bad but weirdly mesmerizing dance videos had earned him shoutouts from the likes of Rihanna (and dance tributes from the likes of Josh Killacky).
But by Sunday morning? By Sunday morning, Russell Got Barzz had reached an entirely different level of memedom. Because Katy Perry tapped the teen—signature backpack and all—to perform "Swish Swish" with her on "Saturday Night Live." And the internet lost its darn mind.
If, like me, you've ever wondered (and wondered) how that stunning opening scene in La La Land came together, do we have a treat for you.
Fashion looks better in motion—that's why runways exist. But when does fashion look REALLY amazing? In dancey motion. And exhibit #69372 in the case for the inescapable connection between dance and fashion is this new video from Harper's Bazaar, featuring our favorite dancer/model/rock star, Larsen Thompson.
