You don’t always need a stage, a studio, or a bedroom to dance. The beautiful thing about dancing is that you can do it everywhere, regardless of surroundings and materials. That’s what Marlee Grace is doing with her gorgeously fascinating Instagram account Personal Practice. On it, you can watch the 29-year-old dancer and author perform for the camera literally anywhere. Definitely read the full New York Times article about her, but before you do, see some of her tender offerings of dancing in the wild.
