“Pretty Big Movement” is Destroying Dancer Stereotypes | Iris



Akira Armstrong was in two Beyoncé videos, but couldn’t find an agent to represent her as a professional dancer because of her size. To change the narrative around what a dancer’s body should look like, Akira started her own dance company, made up of plus-size dancers. “Pretty Big Movement” is destroying dancer stereotypes, one routine at a time.

Featuring:
Akira Armstrong, Zenobia Rodgers, Catya Craig, Hayley Kiriazi, Tiffany Torres, Aurelia De Jesus, Dara Alina Gadsden, Letticia Teece Camacho, Romann
