Everyone always makes the wrong assumption that ballerinas and dancers have to look a certain way. But one teenager smashed that body stereotypes to bits last year. It all started when a video popped up of a 15-year-old named Lizzy Howell doing an impressive ballet dance. And let’s just say that this young lady is a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor. No wonder her video went viral. But it did so much more than that. A year later, the video is still wowing viewers and folks in the dance community, but the teen doesn’t get what the hype is all about.
When you think of a ballet dancer, Lizzy Howell is the last image that comes to mind, and that’s too bad.
The now, 17-year-old may not come in the shape and size most people expect, but she’s proven that her ballet skills are as spot on as anyone else. But that doesn’t surprise anyone who truly knows Howell. She wanted to dance ever since she was five.
If anyone has any doubt that she can twirl on the dance floor, then they need to see this. Howell is an amazing and inspirational dancer who has proven that you should never ever judge a book by its cover.
