The sensational Kylie Shea loves to make us giggle with Insta videos featuring ballerinas doing unconventional things: running on a treadmill in pointe shoes, playing football in a tutu, doing house chores en pointe. But Shea is more than just an Insta darling: She's done commercials, fashion spreads, and performances with the likes of Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, and Adam Lambert. And now she's the star of a powerful music video by electronic artist Kygo and singer Miguel.

When you ask successful commercial dancers why they started dancing, you tend to hear similar stories: Their 5-year-old selves turned on MTV and obsessed over "Thriller" and "Vogue," and they ended up dancing for hours in the living room, mimicking the iconic choreography and falling in love. Music videos were so many dancers' first inspirations.

But what's it really like to dance in a music video? Ysabelle Capitulé, who was featured in Bruno Mars' retro-chic "Finesse" vid, shares her experience fulfilling those living-room dreams.

Sure, we love a good over-the-top music video. But sometimes it's refreshing to find one that goes back to basics. And that's why we're obsessed with Grace VanderWaal's new music video, "Moonlight."

Relying solely on the song's unique sound and some phenomenal choreography by Kristin McQuaid (whose work has appeared on "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dance Moms"), the vid proves that you don't need 15 costume changes and a fog machine to make something powerful. To top it off, the song promotes a message that gives us all the feels, pointing out that while people may seem OK on the outside, you never know what they might be struggling with internally, and that it's important to accept people no matter what. So check out "Moonlight"—and don't be surprised if you suddenly feel like you have to drop everything and dance.
