Why You Absolutely Need To Be Following Alex Wong On Instagram

Alex Wong's versatility truly knows no bounds. From ballet to Broadway, the dynamo has seemingly done it all. Wong was a member of Miami City Ballet before leaving to compete on "So You Think You Can Dance" (where he was the fan favorite but, unfortunately, suffered a serious injury mid-season and had to withdraw from the competition), and then going on to hit the Great White Way in Newsies. He's performed at awards shows, on television shows, and as an All-Star on "SYTYCD," and graced the July/August 2012 cover of DS.

As if his long list of impressive credits doesn't convince you of his versatility, turn to his Instagram, where he is a veritable master of mixing dance and everyday activities. (Think leaping down the grocery store aisles which, come on, we've all done, and pencheé-ing his way to pick up his laundry off the floor.) If you're not following this uber-likeable and hyper-flexible dancer, get to double-tapping. (He's at @alexdwong.) Here's a glimpse into why Wong's worthy of your likes.

Isabella Boylston in "The Bright Stream" (Rosalie O'Connor, courtesy American Ballet Theatre)

Beloved by ballet fans for her lucid technique and onstage effervescence, by her Instagram followers for the deftly curated photos and videos she shares of her glamorous life, and by fangirl Jennifer Garner for all of the above, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is one of the rare ballet stars who's achieved mainstream fame. A native of Sun Valley, ID, Boylston trained at the Academy of Colorado Ballet and the Harid Conservatory before joining the ABT Studio Company in 2005. She entered the main company as an apprentice in 2006, and attained principal status in 2014. In addition to her successes with ABT, where she dances nearly every major ballerina role, Boylston has served as artistic director of the annual Ballet Sun Valley Festival, which brings high-level performances and classes to her hometown. And speaking of famous Jennifers: Boylston recently appeared as Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the film Red Sparrow. Catch her onstage with ABT as Manon, Odette/Odile, and Princess Aurora during the company's Metropolitan Opera House season this summer in NYC. —Margaret Fuhrer
