Molly Long is the rare prodigy who grew up to be even more brilliant. At the ripe old age of 16, Long took charge of the minis at her home studio, Dance Precisions, in Southern California, leading the team to big wins at Nationals. It wasn’t long before she was traveling the country to choreograph and teach. Long’s infectiously musical, explosive yet clean style has been seen on “Dance Moms,” “America’s Got Talent,” “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,” “Raising Asia,” and at New York Fashion Week. Since 2015, Long’s been touring with Revel Dance Convention and growing her Orange County–based company Project 21.
