Brittany Cherry from So You Think You Can Dance turns up the heat in Ed Sheeran’s music video. Indeed she is a well known dancer in the community but who knew Ed had the moves as well? The song is called thinking out loud and it is a full on performance by these two. Ed is a singer/songwriter known for “The A-Team” makes us feel like we are watching the tv show Dancing With the Stars. When all reality the entire performance in “Thinking Out Loud,” was choreographed by Emmy winning dancers from So You Think You Can Dance: Tabitha & Napoleon D’umo, aka “Nappytabs.”
Ed even proudly tweeted ” I’ve learned to dance” we would have to agree with that statement. After practicing for over 40 hours, I think he has learned the language of ballroom dance. Of course he also looks very fit now, he shed about 35 pounds in the process! So we can only hope more music artists follow his lead and do a little jig for us in the future. For now, we are proud of you Mr. Sheeran!
Everyone’s favorite So You Think You Can Dance judges, Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, are accompanied by actress Christina Applegate for the L.A auditions. In Philadelphia, the Prima ballerina Misty Copeland takes a seat at the judge’s table, and Billy Porter sits in on the second day of auditions.
WHO DO YOU LOVE?
Alla Kocherga: This 24 year-old from Los Angeles delivers a smoldering Latin ballroom performance with her partner, Serge Onik. She even suggests that Serge be her boyfriend if they make it to the next round.
Jourdan Epstein: This Minnesota’s dancer’s solo on pointe deals with the pain caused by her brother’s substance abuse issues, and how their relationship has flourished since he became sober.
Malene Ostergaard: After dealing with depression and her loss of self-confidence, she met her current partner, Armen, and rediscovered her love of dance. They are a sizzling couple and light the stage on fire.
I’m a huge advocate for implementing these habits in our youth, when they become adults they will have some amazing memories of feeling confident while learning something new. “Dance is a fantastic way to get fit; not only is it fun, it really gets the heart pumping,” says Julian Omidi, co-founder of the Children’s Obesity Fund. She is exactly right as we all know that dance is a sport, it is competitive, strenuous, exhilarating, and takes impeccable coordination. All of those skills can be taught and the moves can be perfected with practice. Dance is a celebration of the body and this industry is only going to grow bigger and bigger with our youth getting more involved as time goes on.

I have a collection of moving images from history. The one that moved me the most was the girls practicing ballet in Germany post WWII. It is truly incredible how resilient we are! Dance is such a positive influence around the world that will continue touch lives and evolve with us.
The history of dance is just as amazing, I could look at vintage images of dancers all day. Maybe it is the clothes, the originality of the movements for their time, or the facial expressions. I don’t know what it is… but it certainly is captivating.
