All month, we’ve been seeing your best jumps and turns as part of Dance.com’s first contest, and now it’s time for judging!
And let’s just say our judges definitely know a thing or two about jumping and turning!
Meet the judges of our “Jumps and Turns” contest: Stephanie Klemons, Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky!
Broadway’s Stephanie Klemons hails from “Hamilton,” where she is associate and supervising choreographer and an original cast member.
