If you've yet to listen to Leslie Odom Jr. croon the words to "Dear Theodosia" in Act I of a little musical called "Hamilton" -- well, that's fine, because it's pretty hard to get a ticket. You should really listen to the song, though. On Spotify, on YouTube, or, on Olivia Bell's Instagram account.
Bell is, according to her Instagram, an 11-year-old dancer who's participated in American Ballet Theater's Young Dancer Summer Workshop, The Alvin Ailey School's Summer Intensive, and is an ambassador for Brown Girls Do Ballet.
She is, in a word, amazing. And her Instagram account shows it:
She recently posted a video of herself dancing to the "Hamilton" song at the Dallas Conservatory, posted above. We love it for a couple of reasons:
1. The Tony Awards are happening this Sunday and "Hamilton" is bound to win at least a couple of the 16 statues it's nominated for. Good timing, Bell.
2. Bell is such a fan, she's even aware of that time a woman rolled down her car window in front of creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and screamed, "Congrats on 'Hamlet'!"
Yup, she's your new hero.
Who's ready for the Tonys?
