Allison Holker’s year has been filled with challenges and changes
Over the past year, Holker has shared some updates on her mental health and the life of her kids, Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia, who were all affected following the tragic death of her husband and their father. Holker has discussed mental health awareness and published a children’s picture book that she’d been writing with tWitch. In August of this year, Holker returned to dance after an eight month absence. She shared the video on her Instagram, captioning it, “When your life is a mess but you’re just trying to vibe.” The video shows her alongside friend and dancer Brittany Russell, with the two having fun and dancing along to Missy Elliot’s “Bomb Intro / Pass That Dutch.”
Holker shared the mixed emotions she felt when sharing a new dance video. “Truly felt so good to dance again. I was overwhelmed with so many emotions. I was both scared and excited. But dance has always been there for me… even now ,and I am so grateful for that. And thank you @bperryrussell for making it so fun and making me feel safe!”
