Whitney Thore, a blogger and radio producer, is out to prove that you can dance like a pro regardless of your size. It's an issue that's very personal to her.
Thorne was teaching at the Greensboro Dance Theatre by age 16, but quit dancing in college after she experienced inexplicable weight gain.
Unlike Rachel Frederickson, it wasn't just because Whitney let herself go.
"Unable to face my reflection, I failed out of dance class my first semester," Thore told The Huffington Post in an email, going on to explain what happened:
"By the time I had graduated college, been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, moved to Korea, and gained 200 pounds, I was finally able to dance socially."
Still, she "never dreamed I would take a class or perform publicly again."
But when Jared Pike, one of the hosts of the morning radio show Thore produces suggested that she make a "Fat Girl Dancing" video series, she agreed.
