DNCR includes approximately 2,304,287 fantastic little features.

You always wanted to take class with Matt, and now that is a very, very attainable goal. (Taylor Hatala not included, but hey—you can always print out a life-sized version of one of our cover photos to keep you company as you master Steffanina's moves.)

The home feed. Hi Matt!

What other goodies will you find on the app? Well, Steffanina will be writing daily blog posts about all things dance, fitness and music; hosting frequent Dance Challenges, in which he asks fans to choreograph 30 seconds of a particular song and awards prizes to his favorites; doing oodles of giveaways and contests; and launching a new line of clothing featuring his DNCR brand. And if you have a question for the man himself, you can ask him on the home feed, which is basically a big ol' chatroom.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, friends. Get the app here, and start exploring the gloriousness of Steffaninaworld.

On a rainy day in November 2018, Paloma Garcia-Lee got a call from her agent that brought her to her knees outside her New York City apartment: She was going to play Graziella in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.

The call came after a lengthy audition process with Spielberg in the room, and the role, originated by Wilma Curley on Broadway in 1957 and later portrayed by Gina Trikonis in the 1961 film, was her biggest dream. In fact, it's something Garcia-Lee says she manifested from the day plans for the movie were announced in January 2018.

Am I Less Committed to Dance Because I Have Other Passions? (Spoiler Alert: NO!)

Not convinced? We talked with dance psychologist Dr. Lucie Clements and two multifaceted dancers, Kristen Harlow (a musical theater dancer pursuing a career in NYC and Kentucky) and Kallie Takahashi (a dancer in her final year at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts), and got the inside scoop on how having hobbies outside of dance can inform your artistry, expand your range and help prevent burnout.

Catching Up With Christian Burse, Comp Kid Turned Complexions Rising Star

With her nearly limitless facility, well-timed dynamics and incredible control, Christian Burse's future as a dancer was guaranteed to be bright. A student at the renowned Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX, and at Dance Industry Performing Arts Center in Plano, TX, Burse has consistently made waves: She won first runner-up for Teen Outstanding Dancer at New York City Dance Alliance Nationals in 2019, received a grant for summer study at Juilliard from the Texas Young Masters program in 2020, and was named a YoungArts finalist for dance in 2021.

So, it wasn't all that surprising when Burse announced that, at just 17 years old, she would be joining Complexions Contemporary Ballet as an apprentice for the company's 2021–22 season.

Dance Spirit caught up with Burse to hear all about her first season with Complexions ahead of the contemporary ballet company's run at the Joyce Theater in NYC this month.
