Do you guys wish every day could be World Ballet Day? I know I do. Luckily, we have behind-the-scenes photo essays like this one from Marie Claire, featuring American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston, to tide us over until next October.
Even though she has a gorgeous Instagram account, Boylston is relatively private compared to some of her contemporaries, who are total social media mavens (Hi Maria Kochetkova and Dusty Button!). That makes it extra-special when we get a chance to peek behind the scenes at the sweat and glamour of her ballerina life.
Some of my favorite photos from the essay are below.
