Learn a Dance Routine from Disney Channel Star Ruby Rose Turner

via @disneychannel on Instagram

If you've ever seen Disney Channel's "Coop & Cami Ask the World," you know 13-year-old Ruby Rose Turner can bust a move. And having appeared on "Dancing with the Stars", we're certain Ruby has a lot more moves that are just waiting to be performed. So when we heard she released a dance video we lost our chill. Now the dancing machine wants to help you learn the moves to Ruby Rock.


In her newly released video tutorial Ruby and her dance crew demonstrate how to do everything from the Dust Off to the Wiggle Wop. They even break down the featured dance step of the video, known as the Ruby Rock. And we have to give a shoutout to our fave dance darling (and January 2018 cover star) Charlize Glass who completely owns these moves with a flair that's all her own. With dance instructors like this, there's no way you won't nail this fun and fab choreography. Check out this video and see if you have what it takes to Ruby Rock.

After a string of ballet-company rejections, Jennifer Sydor (here in Laura Peterson's "Failure") found success in other areas of the dance world. (Stephen Delas Heras, courtesy Jennifer Sydor)

In her senior year at Butler University, Jennifer Sydor auditioned for more than a dozen regional ballet companies—and got a string of "no, thank you" responses. "I have an athletic build, and my movement quality isn't the typical ballet aesthetic," Sydor says. "But I'd been laser-focused on ballet. When I didn't get a ballet contract, I was heartbroken."

Her one job offer came from Kim Robards Dance, a small modern company based in Aurora, CO. After attending KRD's summer intensive, Sydor ended up accepting a yearlong position with the troupe. "I was relieved and happy to begin my career," she says. She's been working as a contemporary dancer ever since.

In the dance world, rejection is part of the package. That doesn't make it any more pleasant. But whether you didn't get the Nutcracker role of your dreams or you weren't picked for a job despite feeling like you aced the audition, you can emerge from even the most gut-wrenching "no" smarter and stronger.

Guess who's baaaaack?! Your resident Dance Spirit astrologers! And on the eve of the Youth America Grand Prix awards ceremony, we thought it was the perfect time to pair each zodiac sign with a variation commonly seen during the competition. After many painstaking hours spent researching, consulting the stars, and staring wistfully into the sky, we compiled our data and present you with the definitive list of each star sign as a YAGP variation! As we said last time, don't @ us if you're not happy with your pairing—the stars don't lie, baby!
