The "In My Feelings" challenge took the internet by storm last summer, and we have to say, we thoroughly enjoyed how dancey the internet got for a hot second.

Some of the best editions of the challenge came from some fabulous young ballet dancers, and before the challenge becomes 100 percent irrelevant, we wanted to post one of our favorites for your perusal. You've just got to enjoy Kiki from a classical perspective—am I right?

Share your best "In My Feelings" challenge videos in our comments! We're not ready for this internet phase to end, and we plan to ride it out as long as possible 💁.

You're welcome.

Labor Day weekend is upon us, and it's time to get celebrating.

As the U.S Department of Labor puts it, this holiday is "dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."

If you ask us, the "social and economic achievements" of Dance Teachers are MOST impressive this time of year (we might be a little biased, but like whatever 💁).

So this weekend, we think you people should party hard, enjoy the day off, and reflect on all the fabulous things your hard work adds to our beautiful country.

To help with aforementioned reflection, we've provided three journal prompts to help you see all the good you do as a teacher. Get ready to be proud!

You. Are. Brilliant!

Let's face it. Dancers just do things differently. We can never walk down a grocery aisle—we have to tap. We can never simply pick something up we've dropped—without going into a penché. But it's not a bad thing. We love all the ways that dance bleeds into our daily lives.

Turns out the pros aren't ever really off-duty either. Here's how we caught them dancing through their downtime.

One of my favorite questions to be asked is, "What does your perfect day look like?" I love it so much because I have my response down to a science! As a dance lover, it's simple. My perfect day would be filled with ALL dance ALL the time. It would be HEAVEN!

Because I know our readers are dance addicts, too, I thought you might relate to my oh-so-dance-obsessed 24 hours as well. Check out what made the list, and let me know if there are any "MUST-DO'S" that we should have included over on our Facebook page. On your next free day (lol, cute right?) give it a try, and let us know if it's as fabulous as we think it is!
