Elle Fanning teaches us ballet in this super impressive video
Celebrities typically have multiple talents. That’s why it should come as no surprise that Elle Fanning is a great ballet dancer. The actress decided to show off her skills for a Vanity Fair “Secret Talent Theatre” segment, and we’re so glad that she did.
During Fanning’s presentation, she teaches viewers how to do a piqué turn. Of course, she makes it look super easy.
Fanning is also a pretty skilled teacher. Not only does she give off a truly approachable vibe, but she makes sure to go over the small stuff — like, how important it is to lengthen your neck, and the true function of a bun.
So, are we all ballet pros after watching this video? Well, not exactly — especially since we don’t actually have a pair of ballet shoes handy. (Sadly, the piqué turn looks a lot less graceful in Sketchers.)
But! We’re now extremely well-versed with the basics. And the second we get serious about ballet, since it truly is a gorgeous form of dance, we’ll make sure to queue up Elle Fanning’s lesson once more.
