​You'll Never See Gigi and Bella Hadid the Same Way After You Watch Them Break It Down in This "Vogue" Video

Gigi and Bella Hadid are what most of us would call #blessed. I mean, they have a wardrobe even Barbie would envy. Turns out the supermodels are blessed in other ways too: They can actually dance. And those dancing chops are on full display in Vogue's latest fashion film called "Hadid! Hadid! Hadid!" In fact, the whole Hadid family breaks it down in the funny parody made to resemble the classic movie Beetlejuice. The clip starts with the Hadid's preparing to enjoy a family dinner, when suddenly Yolanda, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar release their inner dancing queens to Harry Belafonte's "The Banana Boat Song (Day-O)." They whip out everything from classic moves like the Egyptian to more trendy moves like flossing.


Turns out the brilliant mastermind behind these moves is none other than dance phenom Sherrie Silver, who's choreo for Childish Gambino's "This Is America" music video propelled her into stardom. Silver even shared some behind-the-scenes footage of her coaching the Hadids on set. We can't help but notice the subtle hints of Afro dance Silver included in the choreo, which makes sense since the Rawandan native is known for her passion for the genera and is aspiring to bring African dance to the forefront of pop culture. Who better to help shine a light on the beautiful yet often overlooked dance style then one of the most recognized families in the world?!

Between Silva's choreo and the Hadid fam's effort, our verdict is that this video is lit! Besides, we can't get over how into it Gigi is (girl knows the choreography and seems to be having fun with it). And though the Hadids aren't trained dancers, they've officially danced their way into our hearts. Check out the whole thing below, or just skip to 1:36 to see the Hadid's in all their red-emoji-girl-glory. 💃🏽

How Paloma Garcia-Lee Manifested Her Dream Role, in Steven Spielberg’s "West Side Story"

On a rainy day in November 2018, Paloma Garcia-Lee got a call from her agent that brought her to her knees outside her New York City apartment: She was going to play Graziella in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.

The call came after a lengthy audition process with Spielberg in the room, and the role, originated by Wilma Curley on Broadway in 1957 and later portrayed by Gina Trikonis in the 1961 film, was her biggest dream. In fact, it's something Garcia-Lee says she manifested from the day plans for the movie were announced in January 2018. "I wrote in my journal: 'I am playing Graziella in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.'"

Am I Less Committed to Dance Because I Have Other Passions? (Spoiler Alert: NO!)

Let's face it—dance is HARD, and in order to achieve your goals, you need to be committed to your training. "Still, there's a fine line between being committed and being consumed." Dancers can, and should, have interests outside of the studio.

Not convinced? We talked with dance psychologist Dr. Lucie Clements and two multifaceted dancers, Kristen Harlow (a musical theater dancer pursuing a career in NYC and Kentucky) and Kallie Takahashi (a dancer in her final year at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts), and got the inside scoop on how having hobbies outside of dance can inform your artistry, expand your range and help prevent burnout.
