The 2017 Princess Grace Award winners have just been announced! Over the years, the Princess Grace Foundation-USA has demonstrated a knack for picking out future stars in the dance world, so it should be no surprise that several of the honorees are familiar names.


Jacquelin Harris and Miriam Miller were both part of our 2016 "25 to Watch" list (fun fact: Including Harris and Miller, 27 of our past "25 to Watch" picks are also PGA recipients); choreographers Raja Feather Kelly and Gemma Bond have appeared in our pages on multiple occasions; and both Andrea Miller and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards are previous DM cover stars (April and May 2011, respectively).

If everyone seems a bit obsessed with tidying up right now, blame the trendy Japanese organizing guru Marie Kondo. Her uber-popular book-turned-Netflix-show has so many people purging their closets that thrift stores can no longer keep up with the donations. The reason?
