Josephine, meet Jo Jo Siwa! Although their names are so similar, Josephine has only caught a glimpse of the fabulous Jo Jo Siwa in past Dance Moms reaction videos. So this week, we decided to let them meet - digitally of course. Josephine watches Jo Jo take a dance class for the first time in several years. Similarly, Josephine has not taken a dance class in about 20 years either! She totally relates to the pre-class anxiety and drive towards perfectionism. How would you feel taking dance class for the first time in a while?
Josephine reacts to the ballerinas of Hiplet! Hiplet is a dance style that was created in order to make ballet more accessible to all people! It is a mix between hip hop dance, and classical ballet, including pointe work. The Hiplet Ballerinas auditioned for season 16 of America's Got Talent, so of course Josephine had to check it out! These dancers are extremely passionate, not only about dance, but also about making ballet and the dance world more inclusive! Watch the video to hear their inspiring story and to see Josephine's full reaction!
