The Way You Move

They Love To Dance And Don’t Care What Haters Have To Say About Their Size

Dance like everyone’s watching.

If there's anything we've discovered at A Plus, it's that when it comes to dancing, size doesn't matter. Whether you're a member of Danza Voluminous in Cuba, ballet dancer Eric Cavanaugh, or a mom-to-be carrying a little extra weight while grooving to Meghan Trainor, there's no one-size-fits-all mantra when it comes to having moves.

But plus-size dancer Akira Armstrong learned that the entertainment industry sometimes has other ideas, despite her stealing some scenes from Beyoncé herself in the singer's "Get Me Bodied" clip.

She founded Pretty Big Movement, a New York City-based "full figured dance company specializing in various dance genres such as Hip-Hop, Jazz, Ethnic and more." The group's website says that Armstrong was also interested in putting the group together after she "realized there wasn't a platform for women with voluptuous curves in mainstream media."

It's sad that Pretty Big Movement is necessary, as the clip above reveals just how talented these women are. But we're also happy that Pretty Big Movement exists so that others who may feel hindered by their weight will be inspired by the confidence of the troupe's members.
