AN EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK from Showstopper's Summer 2018 issue!
Ashley Everett scored everyone's dream job nearly a decade ago when she auditioned to dance for Beyoncé. Since then, she has become Beyoncé's longest standing dancer on her team and her dance captain! Showstopper spent the day with Ashely and got the inside scoop on what a typical day is like for her, the challenges she's faced, and what it's like dancing for Beyoncé.
"When I auditioned for Beyoncé I had no agent; I was training at Alvin Ailey at the time. I just went to an open call with a massive amount of people in New York. People were coming from everywhere, trained or not. They asked if I wanted to do a music video and I was like 'YES'—I had to fly to LA and miss school but of course it was worth it. The video turned into multiple videos, those turned into a tour, and a tour turned into this. 10 years later and here we are!"

Everyone loves the multitalented Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. Everyone loves Olympic figure skater (and pop-culture icon) Adam Rippon. Everyone loves when dancers ice-skate, and vice versa. So what could possibly be more lovable than the latest episode of the YouTube show "Break the Ice with Adam Rippon," in which Rippon teaches the sisters Ziegler to skate? (Nothing. NOTHING is more lovable than this freakishly cute video.)

It's safe to say that we're obsessed with the "So You Think You Can Dance" All Stars. Over the past few seasons, we've loved seeing them up on that "SYT" stage, guiding each new batch of contestants. Unsurprisingly, many of the All Stars are as charismatic online as they are onscreen. While we wait to hear which All Stars will be involved in Season 16, here are six from years past that you should totally be following on Insta.

It's been an eventful few months for Sage Humphries, to say the least. Last November, the Boston Ballet company member made her (very well-received) choreographic debut with a piece called YOU, part of the company's BB@home: ChoreograpHER program. Just one week later, Humphries sustained an injury that kept her offstage for a couple of months. But she didn't have much downtime: Artistic director Mikko Nissinen soon asked Humphries to make a piece for Boston Ballet's first-ever appearance at Boston Calling Music Festival. Now that Humphries is back in the studio, Dance Spirit caught up with her to talk about making ballet rock, working with her composer brother, and what it's like to see her name next to William Forsythe's.
