    Halftime: Superbowl Dancer Ling Zhang On What It Takes To Perform With JLo

    Halftime: Superbowl Dancer Ling Zhang On What It Takes To Perform With JLo

    What does it take to prepare for one of the greatest experiences of your life? Jennifer Lopez’s latest documentary Halftime answers this very question.
    Literally Lived It is a special episode where we talk to people who’ve LITERALLY LIVED the experience of being on a tv show or movie. 
    In this episode, hosts Gen Fricker and Alexei Toliopoulos sit down with quite possibly one of the hardest workers they’ve ever met, professional dancer Ling Zhang.
    Ling was about to go on and study biomedicine, but instead decided dancing is where she wanted to be. Fast forward a few years of dedication as well as hard work, which includes a lot of tears, vomit, and eight-hour-long rehearsal days, and she ended up on the Superbowl stage with the one and only JLo!
