Watch Nardia Boodoo Slay in the New Tory Sport Campaign

Washington Ballet's Nardia Boodoo is turning heads these days, and not just at the barre. The brilliant ballerina shines in Tory Sport's latest commercial and we can't help but feel a little bit of pride as our March 2018 cover star brings ballet to the masses. What better way to show off stylish and comfy athletic wear than with Boodoo's strong and luminous dancing?
This isn't the first time Boodoo has modeled for an established fashion brand either. The beauty has lent her talent to ads for Reebok, Free People, and Nike. And on top of her impressive modeling career Boodoo is also helping break barriers in the ballet world as she pursues her dream of becoming a principal ballerina. "It's no longer socially acceptable to only have girls who look exactly the same, in any aspect of entertainment," Boodoo told Dance Spirit last year. "But at the same time it feels like a trend, and I'm not a trend, I'm a human being." Boodoo hopes that her achievements will give more girls that look like her the courage to go after their own dreams.
It's May, which means it's time to gear up for your studio's annual recital! Yes, every group's performance preparations are different, but here are the eight stages pretty much every dancer goes through.
