There was an audible gasp of delight throughout the theater when Ingrid came out on stage. I’ll never forget hearing all the young girls squeal and clap with excitement as their lives probably changed forever. What an incredible dancer and inspiring spirit. And I’m lucky enough to call her a friend. Ingrid, I can’t fathom how you find the time to do all that you do. You are ??? . And I should say, the entire Dance Theatre of Harlem show was phenomenal. Every dancer shined and wowed. Big shout out to Dougla and Harlem on My Mind. ?? . @ingridsilva @dancetheatreofharlem #dougla #harlemonmymind #wcw #wce
