You’ll Be In Awe Of This Badass Dancer

If you need a little kick in the butt to jump-start your next creative project, we may know someone who can help. Meet Mela Sierra, the fiery contemporary dancer shutting it down in the latest episode of In Motion, our video series with H&M. The energy radiating from the clip above is palpable — no wonder Diplo and Major Lazer took notice of the Brooklyn choreographer. While warming up for her next hard-hitting performance, Mela shares, "No matter what I'm going through, if no one else understands is there for me." Not only is this gal the definition of stage presence, but she makes a damn good case for why judgment-free zones are so crucial for creativity. She's also proof that the athleisure trend isn't going away anytime soon. Tune in for more of Mela's inspiring words, moves, and style, and don't be surprised if you're ready to sign up for a dance class by the end of it.
