Here at Dance Spirit, we have a special spot in our hearts for Nick Lazzarini. The "So You Think You Can Dance" alum (Season 1 winner!) and L.A. dance superstar is the first person to achieve a DS hat trick: He's been on our cover three times. You can literally watch him grow up in our pages.
Here's Nick's first cover—our October 2001 issue. So baby-faced!
Cover #2, our January 2006 issue, features Nick looking very debonair:
And now for the big reveal: cover #3, our May/June 2012 issue, which we just got in the office! That's Nick looking all grown up (and extremely cute) on the far right, along with some of the other ridiculously attractive members of Travis Wall's new contemporary company, Shaping Sound.
If you're a subscriber, this issue should be in your hot little hands shortly. If you don't have a subscription, 1) get on that and 2) look for Nick and friends on newsstands May 1.
What do you think—cover #4? 2018ish? Should we go for it?
