You Must Watch This Super Dreamy Melanie Moore Video ASAP

It's not surprising that The Movement series by Elle magazine turned out to be really, really cool—I mean, how could a concept centered around dancers ever be bad? Especially when those dancers include Isabella Boylston and Sara Mearns?

So, naturally, we were super excited to realize the series recently featured "So You Think You Can Dance" winner, former DS cover star and all-around contemporary queen, Melanie Moore.


A contemporary sighting of Moore is a rare occurrence these days. (She's been gracing the stage in Broadway show after Broadway show, and is currently strutting her stuff with Bette Midler in the revival of Hello Dolly! that opened on the Great White Way this past weekend.) Which is why Moore's video for The Movement is so great. In it, she pulls out her signature, dreamy contemporary moves, and captivates with her breathtaking fluidity and effortless grace. It's simply magical. ✨✨✨

Trust us, you're going to want to watch this one over and over and over...

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
