everything was beautiful at the ballet, graceful men lift lovely girls in white

Maybe it's residual Black Swan influence or maybe it's the fact that I am in the middle of rehearsals for our university production of The Nutcracker, but I am so inspired by ballet right now.

Pretty much any shot from Black Swan is gorgeous, but I love this sequence of Nina's final performance

Lauren Hutton poses as she does her pre-ballet stretches

Brigitte Bardot was originally a dancer before she became a world class sexpot



The legendary Red Shoes of the cinema


France Gall has a blast in her ballerina costumery 

Natalie Portman's Nina looks flawless 

A scene from Singin' in the Rain featuring Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse

Brigitte Bardot on point 


James Dean. Swoon. 

I was all about Center Stage growing up


I love the formation of all of the dances in this image


Title: from "At the Ballet" (Chorus Line)

I love all of these photographs. I seriously regret quitting ballet in high school, I miss it so much. I love that you had a picture from The Red Shoes, that is one of my favorite films!

These pictures are absolutely stunning. I have wanted to do ballet since I was a toddler, but alas I haven't yet gotten the chance.

I went through a little obsession with ballet recently, it was after seeing the Nutcracker last Christmas and watching Black Swan, it's such a beautiful style of dance. I just wish I started ballet from a young age as I am farrrr to old to begin doing it now.
