9 Dancers Who Are All Kinds of Foot #Goals

Few things are more beautiful than perfectly arched feet. While us normal humans are on a never-ending quest to make our biscuits look a little bit better, some dancers are just born with gorgeous bananas. Here are 9 artists—from big-name icons to up-and-coming talents—whose feet are all kinds of #goals.


Sylvie Guillem

French ballet icon Sylvie Guillem is #goals for a ton of reasons, and her feet are definitely two of them. Seriously, though—they should be displayed in The Louvre for all the see.

Tate McRae

Tate McRae slays in every style—in part because she has those perfect feet supporting her!

Svetlana Zakharova

Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova has feet we would die for. It's mind-blowing how perfect they are.

Hayden Hopkins

This former Cover Model Search winner is currently showing off her perfect feet on the Cirque du Soleil stage.

Alessandra Ferri

Alessandra Ferri has been dancing for over 50 years, and her legendary feet have only gotten better with time.

When we put gorgeous Gisele Bethea on our cover in 2016, the response was pretty much universally "OMG HER FEEEEEEEEEEET." And that was correct.

David Hallberg

It's pretty extraordinary for a man to have feet ballerinas would kill for—but then, world-famous danseur David Hallberg is no ordinary guy.

Kenedy Kallas

Is this ballet and contemporary competition champion for REAL with those banana feet?!

Sophia Lucia

Not only can Sophia Lucia do more pirouettes than anyone else in the world—she also has better feet than almost anyone else in the world.
