I started dancel lessons at age 3 and loved every minute of it (except this one costume that was bright red tulle and SO itchy, but tha’ts another story). For any lover of dance, The New York City Ballet is kind of a huge deal. And for someone who knows how hard it is, I am even more in awe of every little move they make. When I saw this article in The Cut I knew I had to show it to everyone. Thank you, Henry Leutwyler, for sharing these photos with New York Magazine. Plus, ballet dancers always get away with wearing the coolest stuff… and they are the inventors of the sock bun!
