Dance legend and choreographer Travis Wall is championing the LGBT community in one of the most brilliant and moving ways possible: Through dance. In a music video (which Wall conceived, directed, produced and choreographed) for the acoustic cover of "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman, broadway star Shoshana Bean sings as Wall performs a heartfelt dance that pays tribute to the LGBT community. Wall dances with homophobic insults written all over his face and chest, which are then replaced with words of affirmation and empowerment.

When Ruby Castro became a Top 10 finalist on "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 13, she was a fresh, feisty new face to most at-home viewers. But in the dance world—particularly on the ballroom circuit—Ruby was already a household name. Miami-based Ruby grew up as a belle of the ballroom: Her parents, Manny and Lory Castro, are veritable superstars of the scene. They're the owners of Dance Town, an ultra-competitive studio in Doral, FL, and raised Ruby to follow in their furiously fast footsteps. Before she graced the "SYT" stage, Ruby had already been named a U.S. Junior Champion in Latin Ballroom, and competed on "America's Got Talent"—twice!

So, we know she's talented, we know she's versatile, we know she's stunning, and we know she can dance. But here's what you may not know about Ruby.
