9/15/13: Perhaps you saw Vermont dancer Lindsay Richardson when she appeared on Justin Timberlake's arm during his performance at the 2013 Mtv Video Music Awards? Or maybe you caught her striking poses in the Happy Socks ad campaign shot by David LaChapelle? Or shaking it next to Britney Spears in her Twister ad and Justin Bieber in his music video "Beauty and a Beat?" How did this Berlin-native wind up sharing the big stage with super stars?
As a teen, Richardson learned hip hop from Vermonter Sarah Cover who currently runs the studio Urban Dance Complex in Williston. Back in 2007, Eva interviewed the CVU senior and Cover for a Stuck in Vermont where they both talked about their hopes for the future. Over the past 6 years, Lindsay and Sarah have worked together to make these big dreams a reality and now the teacher shares in her student's success.
Eva catches up with Lindsay at the UDC as she prepares to head out on Justin Timberlake's upcoming world tour which opens in NYC on November 6th.
Turns out, dreams do come true. And it helps when you have someone there to believe in you.
Music: Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker, "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" and "Waltz No. 9 Op. 40" - performed by Kevin MacLeod
