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)

What: A group of insanely technical "rock" ballet dancers from the Rock School of Dance Education in Philadelphia, PA.

Where: "AGT" is their first foray into reality TV!

How to Dance Outside

We've all been stubbing our toes and whacking our elbows dancing in less-than-roomy indoor spots lately (hello, 5' x 8' patch of bathroom tile). If you're lucky enough to have access to a backyard or other big green space right now, you're probably itching to take your grand allegro outside, especially as the weather gets warmer. But how can you dance safely and productively in the great outdoors? We got pro tips from Mike Tyus of Jacob Jonas The Company and Xin Ying of Martha Graham Dance Company, both of whom were dancing outside long before COVID-19 hit.
