Madeline Wong and Danielle Polanco: Two Dancers Who Make No Excuses

January 31, 2015

It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Are you rooting for the New England Patriots or the Seattle Sea Hawks? I’m still hoping that the Pittsburgh Steelers make a miraculous comeback, but I’m pretty sure that’s not how football works…

Before I embarrass myself with anymore football talk (Aren’t the Sea Hawks’ costumes pretty?! Can’t wait until Katy Perry performs at intermission!), I’m gonna go ahead and bring the convo back to dance.

Dancers, like football players, are incredible athletes. But you already know that. A couple of weeks ago, spotlighted two dancers as a part of their “Year of No Excuses” campaign: Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet’s Madeline Wong and voguer/choreographer Danielle Polanco. They also featured a triathlete (Katie Botini) and a yogi (Briohny Smyth), whose bodies are equally incredible. Check it out!

P.S. Wondering where you’ve seen Madeline Wong before? Turn to p. 46 in your February 2015 issue of DS to see Ms. Wong rocking her best audition look!
