I'm not a real ballerina, and I'm not a little girl, so I'd walked by the ballet studio for years without ever thinking about taking a class.

It… » 3/11/15 12:50pm 3/11/15 12:50pm

Have ​FKA twigs Teach You How to Dance

Just five short years ago, before FKA twigs was a rising outré-pop star and trendsetter worldwide, she was working with the British government, teaching young people to dance, sing, and write poetry.

You Too Can Learn the Goofy Dance from Last Night's Girls

Last night's Girls took Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna to a beach town on the North Fork of Long Island where they got drunk, fought and — most memorably — learned and performed a delightfully ridiculous dance routine.

Old People Ruin My Dreams of a Sedentary Life

You know, I've always been excited about being old because I thought I could be like my grandmother: relaxed, full of life, smoking a cigarette from a bitch stick while calling the police on my neighbors, but then these people come along and mess up my entire fantasy.
