America's Got (Dance) Talent!

There are about a million and one reality competition shows these days—and for good reason: We love being wowed by talented (and often crazy) people. But lately, it seems a lot of these shows have been overrun with some pretty awesome dancers. Just in the last two weeks some notable faces have popped up on the "America's Got Talent" audition circuit—and we're thrilled about it.

Meet the newest "AGT" dance superstars:

Who: D'Angelo and Amanda

What: The spiciest little ballroom dancers from Dance Town in Doral, FL

Where: The duo won Paula Abdul's "Live to Dance," Amanda was a contestant on "Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition" and D'Angelo was a member of The Untouchables on "AGT" Season 7.

Also, check out D'Angelo's adorable little sis Ruby and her partner Jonas. They, too, successfully auditioned—no surprise there!

Who: Sophia Lucia

What: A tiny comp kid from San Diego Dance Center with dynamite technique and performance skills. She recently set the Guinness World Record for pirouettes—55!

Where: Sophia is a regular guest on "Dance Moms" and has made appearances on "Dancing with the Stars" and Disney's "Shake It Up."

Who: The Rock Dance Project (Lucas Bilbro, Jake Casey, James Floyd, Regina Montgomery, Madison Pride, Claire Rathbun, Rachel Richardson, Taylor Sambola, Rammaru Shindo, Isaiah Sumler, Tomoha Terada)

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
