4 Latinx Dancers Breaking Boundaries

It's National Hispanic Heritage Month, a period observed from September 15 to October 15 that recognizes the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic communities to American culture. The dance world has been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of those contributions, with Latinx dance artists leaving legacies that have helped move it to a more inclusive place.

At Dance Spirit, we're celebrating the month by highlighting four Latinx dancers whose groundbreaking work is opening doors for the next generation.

"DWTS" Week 7 Recap: Who's the Real Villain?

Though we hate to question a "Dancing with the Stars" theme night, we have to ask: Is this really a year where anyone is craving more villainy? More scary stuff? More heart-racing television? Frankly, we would've been fine if "DWTS" had chosen to skip Halloween altogether this season. We've had enough masks already this year. Let's move right along to Thanksgiving.

Most ballet companies have their Nutcracker in the wintertime, and a fun story ballet in the spring, but what about #SpookySzn?

We're ranking the *spookiest* ballets on a scale from 1-5 Wilis—aka the beautiful dancing ghosts from Giselle. For the sake of this list, 1 will be "slightly concerning" (think, "forgetting your ballet shoes at home") and 5 will be "abject terror" (as in, "forgetting the choreography for your solo and freezing like a deer in headlights").

Without further ado, let's boo-rrée down the list.
