Meet The People: Harper Watters, Dancer + Pride Collaborator

Harper Watters is an accomplished dancer, a soloist who dances with the Houston Ballet. His audience, however, isn’t limited to Texas—he’s also known for the viral videos in which he appears on a treadmill in pink platform heels, the first of which garnered over a million views. His YouTube series The Pre Show gives a glimpse into the lives of professional dancers. This year, Watters collaborated with YTTP to celebrate Pride. Get to know him here.
