This Series Will Cure Your Winter-Break Boredom

Okay, y'all: It's time to call it like it is. You've now been home from school for several days. You've spent some QT with the fam, gorged on all of the holiday goodies, and are finally starting to get just the sliiiiiiiiiightest bit tired of staring into space doing *~nothing~*. You've entered the little-understood (but super-prevalent) state called Winter Break Boredom. This calls for a boredom buster—and boy, do we have a great one for you.


Enter BroadwayBox's genius "Dancing Through My Broadway Resume" YouTube series. It's a simple concept, with BRILLIANT execution. Take a longtime musical-theater dancer, put them in a studio at Broadway Dance Center, and have them dance the most exciting excerpts from each and every show they've performed on the Great White Way. Oh yeah, and overlay the footage with said dancer telling fascinating anecdotes from their illustrious career. Did we mention it's absolutely brilliant? And that we kinda-sorta wish we'd thought of it first? (Four for you, BroadwayBox. You GO, BroadwayBox!)

The roster (at press time, there are 13 videos in all) is chock-full of your favorite Broadway babes—and a few you've maybe never heard of, but definitely should know. In no particular order, a couple of the dancers whose seriously impressive resumes we were most excited to watch unfold in real time:


So whatever you're looking for this winter break—inspiration, relaxation, or boredom-busting—"Dancing Through My Resume" is here for you. Next, we'd love a behind-the-scenes look at how these clips are rehearsed and come together!

How Mark Kanemura—Artist, Activist, and All-Around Icon—Became Our Internet Dance Mascot

Twelve years ago, a baby-faced Mark Kanemura appeared on "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 4. The Hawaiian-born dancer—whose winningly quirky style found a perfect vehicle in Sonya Tayeh's creepy-cool "The Garden" routine—quickly became a fan favorite. Kanemura made it to the Top 6 (Joshua Allen took the title that season), and a star was born.

But the world didn't know how bright that star was going to shine.

Fresh off "SYTYCD," Kanemura started booking jobs with Lady Gaga: first the MTV Video Music Awards, then the Jingle Bell Ball. Soon, he was a staple on Gaga's stages and in her videos, and he began to develop a dedicated fan base of his own.

What It's Like to Attend a Virtual Dance Convention

During this new era of social distancing, the dance world has gotten pretty creative. Tons of teachers, studios, competitions, and conventions have stepped up to the plate to help fill our living rooms with virtual dance content. But what's it really like to attend a dance convention online?

Dance Spirit followed JT Church, "Dancing With The Stars: Juniors" pro and "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation" runner-up, as he spent the weekend attending REVEL's "Rev-Virtual" online convention experience.

Hey guys! I have been a special guest faculty assistant for REVEL Dance Convention for the last four years. So I was excited to find out they'd be hosting a series of online convention weekends. With everything that's going on, I've been missing conventions so much. I knew it'd be great to be able to keep up my training.

Two of my best friends, Jordan and Taylor Goldberg—I dance with them at Club Dance—asked me to come over to their home studio so we could take REVEL's online classes together. Here's how it all went.
