On April 22nd and 23nd. Dancewear Corner hosted the model search for Oh La La Dancewear.
All the dancers auditioning got to meet Lilly K. and take pictures with her.
Here are some pictures from the day because pictures can speak louder than words.
Everyone was so great that it took the judges longer than expected to pick out the dancers that will get to model Oh La La DanceWear.
After the event, the chosen dancers then got to take pictures with @staceyk.photography.
Meet this month’s Spotlight Dancer Kali Kleiman. Kali is just 14 years old and has been studying at The Dallas Conservatory with Olga Pavlova and Jacqueline Porter for five years. There she primarily focuses on Ballet, but she also trains in many other styles. She is also the oldest of four kids. One brother and two sisters. In the past, she has gone to different Summer Intensives, such as The Rock, Houston Ballet, even twice at The School of American Ballet, and this summer she will be attending one at Ellison Ballet. She is a big fan of cosmetics and obsessed with tiny trinkets, and 90’s Netflix series like Friends, Felicity, Ally McBeal and she loves Riverdale!
We wanted to get to know her a little better.
What is your favorite class to take?
I love company class! Saturday mornings with our whole company is electric! We may be in our levels during the week or too busy to connect, but seeing everyone’s progress on the weekends and the love and encouragement shared between company members is really special. I love each of them so much!
What’s your favorite piece of dance clothing you own/ owned?
My most favorite dance clothing are some leg warmers my mom made me when she was pregnant with my little sister. She worked for hours on them while watching me at a competition one weekend. She put an antique button on each one that is so unique! She made them with love!
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Oh, my! If I had all that extra time I would probably be training more and maybe have a boyfriend! Bunheads don’t have much time for all that!!
What songs have you completely memorized?
Stay Open by Diplo, love it! Just a great reminder to be open, stay open, and keep the dream alive! Love it!
Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
I crush on everything from Imagine Dragons!
If you could perform a duet with any dancer who would it be and why?
Sascha Radetsky!!! He is so amazing, and I love him and Stella together; Center stage fangirl too! Funny story he is actually the first guy I ever partnered with! He came to our studio to teach partnering techniques and I got to be his demo girl! I was so happy!!

Say Hello to our featured dancer Julia Carrano . She, along with some other dancers, had the opportunity to get her photo taken by Jonathan Givens at his signing event in Dancewear Corner a few months ago, but we wanted to get to know her a bit better.
1.What is your favorite dance class?
It’s hard to pick, but I would say that I’m really enjoying my jazz class this year.
2. What is your go-to style for leotards?
Classic but fashionable
3. If you could perform a duet with any dancer, who would it be and why?
Christopher Gattelli, because he’s an amazing dancer and has choreographed so many successful Broadway musicals; my favorite is Newsies. I also think it would be fun to dance with John Travolta as Danny Zuko, because Grease is my favorite movie and I love 50’s fashion!
4. What is something you want to work towards in 2018?
I’m really concentrating on my Acro tricks this year.
5. If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
I would probably be choreographing combos, or snuggling with my pup.
6. What is your favorite piece of dance clothing that you own?
I LOVE my new Tiler Peck leo. It’s so pretty and comfortable!
7. What songs have you completely memorized?
Pretty much every Broadway musical soundtrack! Kinky Boots is my favorite.

Panic! At the Disco or Charlie Puth
I hope you all have enjoyed learning a bit more about Julia.
