"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 Still haven’t subscribed to Iris on YouTube? ►► http://bit.ly/subthescene CONNECT WITH IRIS Web: http://heyiris.com Twitter: http://twitter.com/heyiris Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/heyirisdotcom/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/heyirisdotcom ABOUT IRIS At Iris, our message to women is simple: You are enough.
