Parris Goebel winning awards and partying with the stars
Dancer Parris Goebel is rubbing shoulders with one of the biggest pop stars in the world.
Not only is the Kiwi choreographer working with Rihanna on her upcoming Anti tour, she's also partying with her.
Goebel snapped a selfie with Rihanna at the singer's 28th birthday party at the weekend with a simple "happy birthday" and "thank you for having me".

Rihanna's Anti tour is set to bank 69 shows across Europe and North America between March and August this year with support from Travis Scott, The Weeknd and Big Sean.
It's yet another huge achievement for Goebel, who has previously worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce.
And it comes after her wins at the World of Dance Industry Awards, where she recently received four nominations and took home the awards for two: female choreographer of the year and best live performance for her work on Jennifer Lopez's AMA opening.
The 24-year-old is also getting ready to release her debut EP, expected later this year.
