From Off-Duty Ballerina Portraits to Badass Dancer Shoots

These ballet-inspired editorials show how influential the art form has been in other mediums of expression.

The ballet and ballerina dancers themselves are something to behold, so it comes as no surprise that they would influence pictorials to include the same graceful innocence that defines the dance. Editorials featuring this influence typically go one of two ways. The first is ultra-girly and ethereal photographs, while the latter is a juxtaposed darkness with ballet elements, creating a contrast that is nothing short of eye-catching.

Whether you dreamed of being a ballerina or not, these editorials highlight the lovely nature of the dance style, and highlight a softer side of the models included in the photo shoots.
