I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from people that ballet is boring. And I can’t blame them as ballet is a very technical form of art and you need to know the “rules” to understand what’s going on on stage. Another thing about ballet that pushes people away is its classical background. For most people, ballet is all about Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and other famous pieces. People see it as an outdated form of dance but I can assure you this is not true. There is so much more to ballet than people running around in patterns to classical music.
Meet Brittany Cavaco, a professional ballerina, who keeps inspiring thousands of people on social media to start appreciating ballet as a form of contemporary dance. Her Instagram @TheBallerina speaks for itself with its 200,000+ followers.
I know what you think, “yet another Instagram dancer”, but this is not her case. Brittany Cavaco is more than just a performer. She is a pilates trainer, a business student, but most importantly, she’s a spokeswoman and advocate for a healthy body image.
