This uber-talented Principle with the Boston Ballet has more than just a ballet game. Coming from a varied background, she regularly posts videos practicing her gorgeous technique, posing in exotic locales and wonderful, imaginative choreography and improv.
Tap lovers will find a plethora of posts from current tap greats, including Anthony Morigerato, Mike Minery & Ayodele Casele. Favorite posts are the addictive Technique Challenges, where dancers can learn a series of challenging sequences that push you to get it clean and get it right. So frustrating. So good!
This might sound like a ‘duh’, but Misty’s groundbreaking celebrity is just plain fun to watch! She is your daily reminder that with determination and the right attitude, all things are possible.
The Biscuit Ballerina
Who is this person?! This account pokes fun at all the technical flaws you might see on a poorly trained pointe dancer. While this type of thing isn’t usually my bag, I have to admit that it cracks me up. Guilty pleasure, anyone? A good reminder not to take yourself too seriously.
Great account featuring lots of crazy dancing, travels, fun and adventure. They were an online favorite even before their World of Dance win. Their energy is just infectious! Two good guys with good attitudes and a great sense of humor.
Power of Positivity
OK, so this isn’t technically a dance account, but it certainly delivers on uplifting and inspirational sentiments that help you power through your day and keep things in perspective. They post a lot, like A LOT, which guarantees that you’ll find something positive in your feed any time you click that icon.
Debbie Allen Dance Academy
When I think of Debbie Allen, I always think of “Fame” (the TV series, not the movie… can we all agree the TV series was much better?). But Ms Allen has a thriving and wonderful real life dance studio that posts lots of different dancing, different abilities and different opportunities. Worth the follow.
Nederland Dance Theater
Really interesting company posting really interesting photos and videos of what they do. It’s unique and out of the box. Their videos will really make you think about where you can take choreography and what you can do with it. It makes me want to see them in person, which is kind of the point 🙂
Verdon Fosse Legacy
Fosse is certainly one of my favorite choreographers and his work and movement style really move me. Check out this account, and also don’t forget to learn about Gwen Verdon and her role in some of the most iconic images that come to mind when you think about Fosse.
NH Academie of Dance
You wouldn’t forget to follow your favorite dance studio, would you?
