THE DIRT with Adi Malcolm

Article excerpt

Just over a year ago, Adilyn "Audacious Adi" Malcolm was researching Michael Jackson for a school project and became mesmerized by the moves she saw on YouTube. It snowballed from there: She watched as many videos of poppers, lockers and gliders as she could find, mimicking what she saw on screen. Soon after, a couple videos of Adi herself were posted to YouTube, and she was invited to perform with Memphis jooker Lil Buck at the opening ceremonies of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships held in Vail, CO. Eight thousand people watched Adi's first performance, choreographed by Buck's frequent collaborator and former New York City Ballet principal Damian Woetzel. Woetzel is also the artistic director of the prestigious Vail International Dance Festival- and Adi. now 12, is scheduled to perform there in July. Want to know what makes this tween tick? Read on for The Dirt. -Jenny Dalzell
