What's It Like to Dance for Justin Bieber?

Picture this: You've booked The Tour, the show of the season, dancing for a major star. You walk into rehearsal and begin to learn a series of fabulous routines, led by one of the world's hottest choreographers. You're living the dream.

Sound like a fantasy (or at least a scenario a few years away from your reality)? It doesn't have to be.

A week from today, Universal Music Enterprises will release Believe Tour Dance Experience, which takes you inside the dance world of Justin Bieber's Believe Tour. The DVD features a series of lessons teaching you some of the exact choreography the Biebs and his dancers performed. It also includes performance clips and all kinds of behind-the-scenes footage of Justin and his crew on the road.

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."
