Lucy Vallely's Photogenic Life on Insta

As the winner of 2015 Teen Best Female Dancer at The Dance Awards Las Vegas, 14-year-old Lucy Vallely spends her weekends living the jet-setting life of a convention assistant. In the meantime, she takes classes at her home studio, Elevation Studios, in Signal Hill, CA; studies up a storm through her homeschooling program; and posts regular updates to OHEMV, the cute vintage fashion blog she runs with her sister Emily. That jam-packed schedule, plus her artistic eye, means Lucy has one of the most fascinating Instagram accounts (@lucy_vallely) around. We asked her to take a week off Insta and share her pics with us instead. Behold: seven days in Lucy's oh-so-photogenic life. —Margaret Fuhrer

Ready for a long night of classes and rehearsals at my awesome studio, Elevation!

Just got home from the emergency room with a broken nose. Dance rehearsals got a little crazy tonight.

On my way to NUVO Omaha this weekend. I will not let a broken nose bring me down!

Hanging out in Omaha before NUVO starts this weekend. Love it here!


Reunited with Aria and Shelby! Love these girls! @tubtubtubby @ariaterango (From left, Aria Terango, Shelby Patterson and Lucy)

How to Express Yourself Through Vogue Fem—While Honoring the Community That Created It

"Who are you when you're voguing fem?" asks the choreographer and dancer Omari Wiles, father of the House of Oricci and founder of the dance company Les Ballet Afrik. "What energy is shaping your story?" In voguing, personal expression is the goal, and vogue fem one way to achieve it.

This flamboyant dance form has experienced a recent wave of mainstream visibility, thanks to the critically acclaimed TV drama "Pose," the hit HBO Max's competition show "Legendary" and, now, the proliferation of TikTok videos centered on voguing.

Sean Lew's New Film is Bound to Leave You Speechless

If you know Sean Lew (and let's be real—you should), you know that he pours his heart and soul into his craft. Born a star, Lew has danced alongside artists like Sia and Janet Jackson, choreographed for names like Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor, and performed on two seasons on NBC's "World of Dance."

At only 19, Lew's worn more hats than your average human (or even superhuman), and yet he continues to build upon his long list of natural skills—by adding "producer" into the mix. This time around, he's focused on his own passion project. He produced, wrote, directed, choreographed, edited and even stars in his upcoming film II: An Unspoken Narrative, which also features some of our other fave dancers like Kaycee Rice, Zach Venegas and Bailey Sok, just to name a few.

More than just a dance video, and described as his "life's work put into motion," this experimental film fully encapsulates the past four years of Lew's life, depicting an unspoken narrative expressed through dance. There's no dialogue—everything is up for interpretation. Keep reading to get the inside scoop, and be sure to follow Lew at @seanlew as he continues to influence the world with his endless creative ventures.
