When I was 10 years old, I spent my summers playing with my Barbie townhouse and maybe still riding my little girl’s bike. But Canadian twins Nia and Imani Lindsay are about to do something more grownup. And rather extraordinary.

These gifted girls with the gorgeous hair– who also speak French and Spanish – just earned a half scholarship to the “Young Dancer Summer Workshop” at the American Ballet Theatre, which is recognized as one of the world’s most prestigious dance companies.

Cipriana of Urban Bush Babies interviewed the duo to discuss everything from dance to role models.

Unsurprisingly the girls love Misty Copeland.

“She’s humble, a good dancer, and not cocky,” says Nia. “She’s not like Miley Cyrus at all.”

Smart, too!
