At just 11-year-old, it is no question that Olivia Bell is making a name for herself in the world of ballet. She has already participated in the American Ballet Theater’s Young Dancer Summer Workshop, she had the opportunity to dance in the Alvin Ailey School’s Summer Intensive, and she is an ambassador for Brown Girls Do Ballet.
Captioning in a recent Instagram photo, “ballet has changed my life,” if you look through this talented pre-teen’s account you will unquestionably see that that is undeniably true. This young lady lives ballet, seemingly all through her infectious smile.
In honor of the one year anniversary of Hamilton’s opening, Bell without a doubt proves in the video below, taken at the Dallas Conservatory, that #BrownGirlsDoBallet as she magically dances to “Dear Theodosia” from the award-winning musical. Check out her hypnotic routine and follow Bell’s journey on Instagram. This young lady is definitely one that you want to watch.
