Ailey Extension is teaming up with Pretty BIG Movement to bring you a “Move Your Curves" workshop. Pretty BIG Movement, based in New York City, is a full-figured dance company specializing in various dance genres such as hip-hop, jazz, ethnic, and more. Founder and CEO Akira Armstrong realized there wasn't a platform for women with voluptuous curves in mainstream media, and so she created one. While auditioning for Full Figured Fashion Week, Akira found that she was surrounded by confident, plus-size women who were beautiful, curvaceous, and shared the same passion in dance. She seized that moment and started Pretty BIG Movement. By 2015, the voluptuous dance troupe performed in Ladies Of Hip-Hop, Carnival (choreographers' ball), Ms. Full Figured USA pageant, Female Hip-Hop Honors award show, Salt N Pepa, Lane Bryant campaigns ("I'm No Angel" and "Plus Is Equal"), Full Beauty commercial, Mz. 007 concert and NBC's America's Got Talent (season 10). Currently, Pretty BIG offers dance workshops in the tri-state area to the plus-size community, creating a No Judgment environment where individuals can feel comfortable dancing.
