It’s February—the month of love! So, we decided to give an extra shout-out to some of our favorite dance crushes.
Sophie Holloway: This Aussie’s choreography is perfectly precise and oh so fierce. We can’t get enough of her cinematic Insta-videos throughout the year and behind-the-scenes antics with her fellow Radio City Rockettes during the Christmas season. @sopholloway_
Martha Nichols: Looking for some soulful inspiration? Go take Martha Nichol’s class to feel inspired and express your joy of dancing. Martha is not only a standout dancer and performer, she is an incredible choreographer. Catch her on TV, in movies and on the stage. She has even modeled some Jo+Jax in the past! So much love for Martha! @nichols14
Khori Petinaud: You know the dancer you can’t take your eyes off in class? That’s Khori. She’s currently cancan-ing in “Moulin Rouge: The Musical” and when she’s not performing, you’ll always find her in class at Broadway Dance Center. Whether on the stage or in the studio, Khori inspires others everywhere she goes. @kmr8787
Georgina Pazcoguin: AKA #rogueballerina. A soloist at New York City Ballet, Georgina has also graced Broadway in CATS and FX’s limited series, “Fosse/Verdon.” No matter what style she’s tackling, Georgina brings her stunning technique, vivacious spirit, and artistic abandon to everything she does. @georgina_pazcoguin
Stevie Doré: Stevie is kind of Yanis Marshall’s muse (#goals). We are obsessed with Stevie’s Insta-vids and can’t quite understand how she dances so flawlessly with her hair down and in such high stilettos. Stevie makes every movement simultaneously effortless and captivating. @stevielyne
Beth Nicely: We’ve talked about this powerhouse on the blog before. #Poptap creator, Beth, reminds us of the Energizer Bunny—with more rhythm! This former Rockette and Broadway showgirl choreographs fun (and fast!) tap numbers to some of our favorite pop songs. Be sure to check out @poptapnyc to follow along. @bethjnicely
