It's rare to meet a twentysomething who has quiet confidence, grace, and style in spades. So, needless to say, when we met Keenan Kampa, we were shocked — and delighted. The NoVa native and professional ballerina has an incredible story: She's been dancing since she was four, winning medals and accolades galore, and in 2012, became the first American dancer to join the prestigious Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg.
Her stunning good looks haven't gone unnoticed, either — she was the face of G-Star Raw's fall '13 campaign, and has done scores of editorial shoots.
