At 17-years-old, Michaela DePrince is already taking the ballet world by storm. Adopted from Sierra Leone as a toddler, she has become an elite dancer at the American Ballet Theatre in New York City. DePrince is one of six dancers featured in the award-winning documentary, First Position, due out May 11. An early look at the film had the producers of Dancing with the Stars eager to have her perform on the show.
Michaela’s performance aired last night on the show, where she danced with Ade Chike Torbert to a live performance of Natasha Bedingfield’s new song, “Wild Horses.”
