Capezio Sales Coming From Your Newest Fashion Intern

Hi Dance Spirit readers! My name is Carrie, and I am one of the newest summer fashion/editorial interns here at Dance Spirit and Dance Magazine. I’ll be keeping you posted with up-and-coming dancewear trends as well as my thoughts on various dance performances and classes.

A Westchester County, NY native, I just spent my past semester studying abroad in Florence, Italy and am now eager to be back in the states! I am going into my senior year at Syracuse University where I am double majoring in Magazine Journalism and English with a minor in Sociology at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. I have been dancing since the moment I was able to stand on my own two feet, decked out in the token pink tutu and silver tiara. Having studied all types of dance for the past 18 years, I am the most passionate about jazz and hip hop. Don’t get me wrong, every time I see Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake I become entranced with the entangled trauma of the classic beauty Odette. However, give me a Wade Robson or Shane Sparks routine, and I can’t wait to throw on my favorite pair of sweats and sneakers to pop and lock.

My favorite dance memories include performing at Madison Square Garden during the pre-show for a Knicks basketball game and dancing on my high school dance team each week with a group of my closest friends. I can’t wait to get back to SU this fall to hit the studios as a choreographer and dancer in the largest student club on campus, DanceWorks

With summer already on its way, I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to combine my two loves—dancing and writing—for what I know will be a truly rewarding experience. And, with summer comes a whole new season of trendy dancewear! We at Dance Spirit know you love your Capezio apparel which is why we know you’ll be pumped that Capezio is holding a nationwide one-day only sale on June 21st at all stores and online.

5 of the Danciest TV Shows Streaming Right Now (and Where to Stream Them)

We're about two months into #SocialDisDancing, and let's be real—while we all wish we were spending every spare minute stretching, cross-training, or taking online classes, sometimes we just need to Netflix and chill.

We figure, if you're going to be watching TV anyways, why not make it dancy TV? After all, watching pros dance on-screen is basically dance class homework...or at least we'll say it is. Here are five of the danciest TV shows for you to watch—and where to find them.

The Making of "Center Stage," as Remembered by Its Dance Stars

Whether you first watched it in a theater two decades ago or on Netflix last week, odds are you feel a deep connection to Center Stage. The cult classic, which premiered May 12, 2000, is arguably the greatest dance film ever made. (Dance obsessives might take issue with the "cult" before "classic," not to mention the "dance" before "film.") Jody Sawyer's ballet journey—which combines oh-wow-I've-had-those-blisters realism with wait-does-she-have-magic-color-changing-pointe-shoes fantasy—stands the test of time, early-aughts fashion be darned. We've memorized its highly quotable lines, laughed with (and, gently, at) its heroes, and been inspired by its sincere love of dance and dancers.

To celebrate Center Stage's 20th anniversary, we asked five of its dance stars to talk through their memories of the filming process. Here are their stories of on-set bonding, post-puke kissing scenes, and life imitating art imitating life.

2020 Dance Grads: We Want to Put You on Our Cover!

Hello, all you members of the great Dance Class of 2020. With the world on lockdown, this hasn't been the graduation season you expected. You likely weren't able to go to prom; your commencement ceremonies have probably been delayed or canceled; and you might not have been able to take your planned-for final bow onstage.

Since you're missing out on so much, we'd like to give you a virtual ovation, to recognize all you've accomplished. And what's the highest honor we can bestow? The cover of Dance Spirit!

Here's the plan:

  • If you're a high school or college senior dancer, use this form to submit your information and dance portrait.
  • Each day during the month of May, we'll create a digital Dance Spirit cover starring one of you, chosen at random—31 covers in total.
  • At the end of the month, we'll create a "commencement video" featuring even more of your submitted dance photos.
  • 100 of you, selected by lottery, will also receive free one-year subscriptions to the print magazine.

Merde, 2020 graduates, as you dance your way into the future!
