36 Ballerina-Inspired Innovations

From Bloody Ballerina Shoots to Voluminous Tutu Skirts

— July 31, 2010 — Fashion
The featured ballerina-inspired innovations prove that ballet doesn't have to be limited to grace and beauty. With both soft, feminine tutus as well as dark, edgy ballet shoots, the variety used in incorporating ballet into different contexts is undoubtedly extensive.

Take a look through these ballerina-inspired innovations and get in touch with your inner dancer.

Implications - Ballet is making a comeback, but this age-old performance art has been updated to appeal to mainstream culture through infusions of pop culture and subcultures like the punk movement. To take advantage of this phenomenon, businesses must reinvent traditional practices and art forms in a way that resounds with today's tech-savvy, urban consumer base.
