1. New York City Ballet principal Gonzalo Garcia and Gordo
4. Los Angeles Ballet principal Petra Conti and Misiu
There's only one thing that could make an Odette tutu even better—and that's a cat to go with it. Conti and fellow LA Ballet principal Eris Nezha are the proud parents of two Siberian cats, Misiu and Frida. You can follow these fluff balls on their very own Insta, which they share with the couple's four parakeets.
5. American Ballet Theatre principal Herman Cornejo and Mila
Nothing says true love like letting a foot—especially a dancer's foot—scratch your chin. And if this isn't a big enough testament to these two's relationship, their matching outfits for this year's World Cup definitely are.
