The group of black ballerinas, hailing from Chicago's south side, received the surprise of the lifetime when the principal ballerina joined them on "The Steve Harvey Show". Harvey dropped some subtle hints, saying that if they worked hard enough, they would one day meet their idol. Then, it happened -- with tears, hugs and feels in abundance.
