Justin Bieber's New Visual Album Is Dropping from Dance Heaven

ICYMI, Justin Bieber's newest album Changes has been dominating the charts for a bit now. As expected, wonderfully vibey dance goodness has followed, in the form of TikTok trends, class combos, and viral dance videos. Now, the Biebs has further upped the dance ante, dropping the first two installments of his Changes visual album. And the gorgeously choreographed vids highlight some of our favorite dance artists.


"All Around Me" features partnering whiz Phillip Chbeeb and his real-life partner, Makenzie Dustman, flipping every which way between two moving walls. Chbeeb also choreographed the super-intense video.

"Habitual" is a one-take wonder choreographed by Tessandra Chavez and featuring eight incredible contemporary hip-hop dancers, including Nataly Santiago, Stephanie Mincone, and Zack Everhart. Filmed backstage and onstage at a theater, it seems to contain a multitude of #showmances.

Global superstars putting dancers, and choreographers, front and center? We're very, very here for it. As promised by Bieber when he first teased the album on his Instagram, new Changes videos will be released every Monday and Wednesday. We'll be watching these first two on loop as we patiently wait until noon tomorrow. You're welcome to join.

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."
