Watch This Teenage Ballerina Shatter Every Stereotype About 'Dancer Bodies'

Lizzy Howell is a 15-year-old from Milford, Delaware, who posted a video of herself doing fouettés (to me they're just really cool spins) on Instagram that’s gone viral.  It's IMPRESSIVE.

 

Lizzy has pseudotumor cerebri, a condition in which a person experiences symptoms of a brain tumor (like headaches, blurred vision, and dizziness) without actually having a brain tumor.  Lizzy has also partnered up with Dancing for You, a campaign for dancers with disabilities and says she’s aware that she doesn’t fit the classic  ballet dancer mold — she just doesn’t care.  Dance helps relieve stress for her as well as make her happy.
