Dior Put Dancers On the Runway—And We're OBSESSED

Guys, this may just be the fashion/dance collab to end all fashion/dance collabs.


ICYMI, Dior presented their Spring 2019 collection at Paris Fashion Week, which continues through October 3rd. But models weren't the only ones walking the runway—an entire ensemble of modern dancers (not to mention tons of dreamy dance-inspired looks) took to the catwalk, as well.

The dancers performed a gorgeous piece by Sharon Eval (who danced with Batsheva Dance Company for decades before starting her own company) and, tbh, it's almost just too much for our dance and fashion loving hearts to bear. IT'S THAT GOOD.

Inspired by female trailblazers, the show, led by Maria Grazia Chiuri, also featured quotes from some of the dance world's leading ladies at the entrance:



Long story short, it was a completely flawless and entirely respectful tribute to dance and its icons (are you listening other major fashion brands?!) and you need to watch the whole thing right this very second. (The dancing really gets started around the 6 minute mark.)

Mandy Moore Puts Dance in the Spotlight in NBC's Newest Series, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist"

Imagine living in a real-life musical, where spontaneous song-and-dance breaks happen as often in the street as they do onstage. After a series of unusual events, every dancers' dream becomes an unexpected reality for computer coder Zoey Clarke (played by Jane Levy) in NBC's newest series, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist." Although at first her new powers catch Zoey off guard, when she learns to embrace them, she's able to connect with the world around her like never before.

And the best part? Every musical mashup puts incredible dancing front and center, thanks in large part to series choreographer and all around dance-for-the-screen extraordinaire, Mandy Moore. Dance Spirit chatted with Moore about choreographing for the dance-driven series, which returns to NBC with all-new episodes this Sunday, February 16 at 9/8c.
