I love your videos but I miss the informative ones and they used to have more character too. Dont get me wrong, I love the messages in the videos but I miss some of the humor too, and the lack of consistancy in your posting... It used to be weekly. Now it is almost once or twice a month!

Hope's fluid movements are just breathtaking, and she expresses so much in her dance. Just stunning.

Dance isn't about about all abaout perfect technique and physicality but I wouldnt pay my money to see someone dance like that, looking like that. its the 21st century

Her dancing shakes my soul...

Exactly what I think... I watched this and thought, this is what dancing is really about.

that hurts my feelings i have been studing ballet for years, and the dance she is doing is called MODERN dance, and I am studing classical ballet, modern is not ballet. and dont assume that i dont know enough about ballet, when you know nothing about me

@ballerinahoney the type of dance she's doing is contemporary.

if ballet wasnt classical ballet, they wouldnt call it classical BALLET!! I think that is kinda obvious..........

1:36 "They could see something beyond the thing that didn't work for them. They could see what could work" We spend so much time looking at what makes us less worthy. This video reminded me to remember what makes me special. Thanks <3

The shapes she creates are simply incredible. She really paints a picture across the floor with her movement, I've never seen anything quite like it! A true artist!

Despite her technique being more modern, it couldn't have been any more beautiful. She screams femininity despite her masculine-esque appearance.
Report spam or abuse
There's something about her eyes when she dances! So much expression!!

I am startig POINTE soon, does anybody have any tips?

I'd love to be a flexible dancer. I also want to start ballet. Starting tomorrow i'm going to stretch everyday. I've got a dance workshop coming up soon so i'll be able to try ballet.

She trained at my dance studio, Jeannette Neill's Boston Youth Moves, and so did Kirven Boyd (also in Ailey)! She is a gorgeous gorgeous dancer and an awesome person. <3

oh well yes :) I was only observing that she is able to dance, somebody did not even accept it as ballet... and it is just there to be seen that she represents the concept of what dance is

She's gorgeous. Especially her definition of an artist. I couldn't agree more. <3

Excellent, real expression dancing that doesn't rely on physical tricks. Great to see videos included here without sticks.

Lovely background music! Just really complemented the rest of the video :D

Well, maybe not but it requires a quite similar technique.

I am 16 and I am working towards my advanced 2 exam in the fall, but my big toenails have gone through a long process of bruising, cracking and now completely falling off. My ballet teacher told me to get acryllic fill on them, so I did. They do feel better but it is still very painful, which is odd for me because I dont normally have any problems on pointe. What do you guys suggest?

Your so beautiful and an amazing dancer I wish I could do all that you can do

You are absolutely stunning! Thanks for posting!
