Rylie and Codie: Next Gen Ballerinas
AMBASSADOR DIGITAL MAGAZINE Editor- In-Chief Musa Jackson chats with ballerinas Rylie and Codie, and their mom Stacie J., about their new youtube webseries, Rylie and Codie’s World!
Born and raised in Harlem, Rylie and Codie, ages 13 and 9, have been dancing since they were 2 and 3 years old, and credit Misty Copeland as their inspiration. Now, with the help of the internet, the sisters are doing what comes naturally to them by documenting their lives as up-and-coming dance professionals for all the world to see. Imagine if we’d gotten a glimpse of Venus and Serena becoming tennis legends in real time!
If you haven’t seen or heard of Rylie and Codie’s World, produced by, and also starring the girls’ mom, Stacie J., from season 2 of The Apprentice, you will. The show just launched a few months ago and has already been featured in Essence, Shadow and Act and NY1 News. With Erickka Sy Savane (A Luv Tale: The Series on BET+) serving as writer and co-producer, Rylie and Codie’s World is an entertaining and rare look at the competitive New York City dance world through the eyes of these two young ballerinas who live and breathe dance. Check out my interview with these Harlem gamechangers!
As Rylie and Codie’s mom, I hope that I can help them understand that nothing in life is free and hard work does pay off. And, if you get a "no" for an answer try again for a "yes."
