Introducing Dance Spirit's May/June Issue!

Dance Spirit’s May/June 2014 issue. Shot by Joe Toreno. The day I found out Jeremy Hudson and Mark Kanemura were dating, I sprinted across the office and practically shouted to the rest of the Dance Spirit staff, “We have to put them on the cover!” You know Mark from Season 4 of “So You Think […]

You Talk, We'll Listen

Summer’s winding down and while you prepare to head back to school and the studio, we’re busy gearing up for the 2014 issues of Dance Spirit.

The Shaping Sound Tour Premieres Tonight!

10 Things We Learned From "All the Right Moves" Episode 1

Last night marked the premiere episode of “All the Right Moves” on Oxygen. Surely you know this by now since we basically haven’t shut up about it since May. The first episode brought exactly what we expected: two contemporary routines, a whole lotta “who’s the boss of this company?” drama, and plenty of shirtless Kyle […]

We Love Chantel Aguirre

Have you received your January issue of DS yet? If not, sorry for the spoiler alert, but you’ve probably figured it out by now: The first cover star of 2012 is Chantel Aguirre, and we completely adore this ballet-trained commercial dancer. Travis Wall—you know him, you dig him—had tons to say about Chantel during a […]

All Eyes On Chantel

“The first time I saw Chantel Aguirre dance was in a video,” recalls choreographer Travis Wall. “My first thought was that she had crazy lines. My next thought was that I wanted to meet her.” A few months later, Wall did meet Chantel, who was 18 at the time and working as an assistant at […]
