7 Dancers Whose Flexibility Is #Goals

Is Tate McRae even human? (Erin Baiano)

Pretty much every dancer—even the bendiest!—wants to be more flexible. We'll be trying to get that perfect tilt 'til the day we die. Looking for a little inspiration as you work out your splits? Here are 7 dancers whose flexibility is the definition of #goals.


Tate McRae

Tate McRae's legs are longer than our lifespans, and tbh, we're okay with that.

Audrey Freeman

Every single time Audrey posts a picture on Instagram, our jaws drop. Alexa, play "Successful" by Ariana Grande.

Ryan Steele

It feels like this Broadway favorite can do literally anything. That's how flawless his flexibility is.

Hayden Hopkins

Hayden's not just crazy flexible—she also has KILLER technique. Simply stunning.

Derek Piquette 

During his run on "So You Think You Can Dance," Derek Piquette made a name for himself with his insane flexibility—and now you can once again drool over those extensions from the comfort of your couch, since he's competing on the current season of "World of Dance."

    It's a Ziegler Zamboni! (screenshot via YouTube)

    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.

    Sage Humphries rehearsing "White" (Brooke Trisolini, courtesy Boston Ballet)

    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.
