The Final Countdown for Bring It On: The Musical

I have bad news. Bring It On: The Musical, one of the most entertaining, most dance-tastic musicals on Broadway is closing on December 30. Silver lining: You still have 35 days left to see the show!

Why should you do that, you ask? With moves by super-star Broadway choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler (who's also choreographed In The Heights and the current revival of Annie), these dance numbers are full of high-flying cheerleading stunts and hard-hitting hip hop like you've never seen on the Great White Way. Plus, the stage is crowded with beyond talented young dancers making their Broadway debuts. Just like the movie it's based on, this tale is full of quirky, laugh-out-loud one liners and, though the story is different, it still concludes with a nail-biting cheerleading competition. Won't have a chance to get tickets? Check out this awesome video montage to get a peak at its greatness:

Plus, get excited for Dance Spirit's February issue, which features one of the stunning stars of Bring It On: The Musical—and find out about her exciting next step!

Isabella Boylston in "The Bright Stream" (Rosalie O'Connor, courtesy American Ballet Theatre)

Beloved by ballet fans for her lucid technique and onstage effervescence, by her Instagram followers for the deftly curated photos and videos she shares of her glamorous life, and by fangirl Jennifer Garner for all of the above, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is one of the rare ballet stars who's achieved mainstream fame. A native of Sun Valley, ID, Boylston trained at the Academy of Colorado Ballet and the Harid Conservatory before joining the ABT Studio Company in 2005. She entered the main company as an apprentice in 2006, and attained principal status in 2014. In addition to her successes with ABT, where she dances nearly every major ballerina role, Boylston has served as artistic director of the annual Ballet Sun Valley Festival, which brings high-level performances and classes to her hometown. And speaking of famous Jennifers: Boylston recently appeared as Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the film Red Sparrow. Catch her onstage with ABT as Manon, Odette/Odile, and Princess Aurora during the company's Metropolitan Opera House season this summer in NYC. —Margaret Fuhrer
