And despite the running rumor that she is always set to join the cast of the hit dance show — “never say never,” said Liukin — they have yet to work together professionally before. That is until “Mark called me a few weeks before the shoot and asked if there was any chance I would be interested in being in his video,” she recalled.

The video was for “Miss Incredible,” the second song off Ballas’ EP, “Kicking Clouds,” and was created to feature an array of women — from a trumpet-playing beauty queen to a young woman battling cancer. Ballas wanted to honor impressive women in their element as a tribute to the incredible woman who raised him. …

Nastia was in Nanning doing research with NBC. They’ve flown back to New York to prep for the TV broadcast of Worlds. She was worried about how she could keep up with homework while on the road. :-)

Misty Copeland – Ballerina

Hard Body linked to an inspiring ad. The theme is I WILL WHAT I WANT.

Misty was first introduced to ballet on a basketball court at the Boys and Girls Club in the LA area.

By ballet standards, she didn’t fit the mold. So, she broke it and cast a new one. Fifteen years later, Misty is a soloist for the American Ballet Theatre.
