17-year-old Autumn Miller is one of our (and over 900 thousand other fans') favorite dancers to follow on Instagram, where her bubbly posts include insane turning combinations, beautiful dance shots, and adorable family snaps. Turns out Autumn is just as fun and chic IRL. We got the inside scoop on how to steal her California-cool studio style.
Oh, the dance–fashion love affair: It'sabsolutelyepic, and tends to makes for absolutely fabulous collabs. The latest case in point(e)? British design house Cos' fashion show in Florence, Italy, which featured dancers clad in the line's new collection performing striking choreo by dance-world darling Wayne McGregor.
It's currently New York Fashion Week, which means it's the perfect time to gush over the merging of fashion and dance, yet again. We know we've said it a thousand times, but there's just nothing better than big brands tapping dancers for campaigns or runway shows.

Few things are as magical as a new tutu. But what goes into the creation of this iconic ballet costume? We followed a National Ballet of Canada Swan Lake tutu—made for first soloist Emma Hawes'debut as Odette/Odile—from sketch to stage.
Happy Halloween, dance friends! Wearing costumes is part of our job description, so when we get the chance to create our own, it's no surprise that we get a little #extra (in the best way, of course). Check out some of our favorite dancers' spooktacular ensembles.
So, it's Monday. And that means the struggle is super real right now. Which also means that just like everything else on Mondays, your hair is probably not cooperating. Which is a big problem for dancers, who need it to just. stay. put. through even the roughest of combos.
