Do you recognize that blurry face in the middle of the back row? (via YouTube)

Because the entire world wants to #DanceWithJanet—and because what seemed like literally half the world just descended on L.A. to audition in person for the icon, at her first open dance call in more than 10 years—we thought we'd take an extra-special walk down memory lane this Thursday. Friends, meet the cast of dancers for Ms. Jackson's 1993 tour.

In a singularly epic throwback video, Jackson introduces us to her dance crew for the Janet World Tour. You'll probably recognize the fabulous Tina Landon, who also choreographed the whole thing. But there's another face in particular that's...well, to call it "familiar" would be a bit of an understatement.

Moira Shearer as Victoria Page in the 1948 film The Red Shoes

Q: "Why do you want to dance?"
A: "Why do you want to LIVE?"

Ahhh, so iconic! If you know those lines (slash, embody them on a daily basis), you're already a fan of the 1948 film The Red Shoes. The second line, as spoken by Red Shoes heroine Victoria Page, just perfectly captures the kind of crazy, all-consuming love so many of us feel for this incredible art form.

The Red Shoes turns 70 (!) this year. And Harper's Bazaar decided to celebrate that birthday in an oh-so-glamorous fashion: They decked out three of today's most beautiful ballerinas—American Ballet Theatre's Misty Copeland and Isabella Boylston and New York City Ballet's Tiler Peck—in gorgeous couture inspired by the film. (Obviously, Louboutins were involved.)

As a teenager, contemporary dancer Eveline Kleinjans felt like nothing she did was good enough. Auditioning for university dance programs paralyzed her: “I was so focused on every move I made and what people would think that I wasn't able to be free, to be myself," she says. And her intense perfectionism had real repercussions. “I'd get negative feedback saying, 'We don't see you.' "

Perfectionism is extremely common in the dance world, because dancers hold themselves to terrifically high standards. It's easy to get a little discouraged when you aren't improving as quickly as you want. But there's a difference between healthy self-criticism and an unhealthy obsession with perfection. How can you tell when your drive to be better has crossed the line—and what can you do to get back on track?

Unless you're living under a rock, you know that Queen Beyoncé completely dominated this year's Coachella festival—so much so that it was rechristened, and will perhaps forever be known as, #Beychella. And if you're like us, you couldn't take your eyes off her army of gorgeous, talented backup dancers, who were sharp and stunning throughout the entire performance. They should all be stars in their own right—which is why we're not surprised that, on Instagram, some of them are already celebrities. Here are 7 Beyoncé dancers you need to be following ASAP.

Showstopper's National Finals Opening Number Performance

Showstopper has been making its impact on the dance world since 1978. Before then, dancers didn't have a stage to perform on, the opportunity to learn from peers, or a competitive outlet like most sports. Debbie Roberts recognized this missing piece in the dance community and that is how America's first and longest running dance competition, Showstopper, was born. Debbie taught dance for over 26 years and owned and operated her own dance studio for 20 years. She is now the owner and National Director of Showstopper, along side her husband, Dave Roberts. Dancer, teacher, business owner, author, and mother, Debbie has made dance her life's career.

With several Shaping Sound tours and TV credits like "So You Think You Can Dance," "Dancing with the Stars," and "Boardwalk Empire" to her name, you wouldn't expect Kate Harpootlian to be refreshingly down-to-earth. But that's exactly how she is: As soon as you start talking to the gifted dancer and choreographer, it becomes clear that she doesn't take herself too seriously. And she's happy to tell hilarious stories to prove it. (Ask her about the time she did a Mr. Peanut impression when Mia Michaels asked her to improvise, or the time she starred in a Japanese makeup commercial and had to do grand pliés wearing one pointe shoe and one flat shoe.)

That mixture of humor and grace is evident in Harpootlian's growing body of choreographic work. Her one-act show Better Late Than Never, for example, which premiered last summer, has a jazzy, West Side Story vibe, offsetting heavier moments with touches of whimsy. "There's always a balance in my work," Harpootlian says. "I want to use humor to balance out the darker aspects. It's like one of my friends once said: 'You make me laugh, and then you make me feel bad for laughing.' "
