Still Need a Halloween Costume Idea? These Dancers Nailed It.
Happy Halloween! If you’re still not in the spirit, who better to turn to for some spooky style inspiration than your fellow dancers? These pros’ costumes caught our eye (and made us laugh).
1. Recreating a Legend
Famed ballerina Anna Pavlova recently made an appearance at American Ballet Theatre’s company class. Oh, no, that’s just principal James Whiteside and his impeccable petit allegro. Could’ve fooled us.
2. The Roaring 20s
Choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist Angelica Generosa opted for classic flapper costumes. Bright lips and flashy dress not optional.
3. Tennis Champ
Houston Ballet demi soloist Harper Watters traded ballet slippers for a racket, transforming into Serena Williams. He’s got game.
4. No Bones About It
Pennsylvania Ballet principal Lillian DiPiazza opted for a Halloween favorite, but she softened her skeleton costume with a floral skull crown.
5. The Definition of “Werk”
Ricardo Zayas, a DM 25 to Watch in 2009, slayed as fashion powerhouse Karl Lagerfeld. “Vanity,” Lagerfeld says, “is the healthiest thing in life.” Bling probably isn’t too far behind on that list.
6. In a Galaxy Far, Far Away
Is that a simple peasant working the field? Nope, that’s Royal Ballet first soloist Beatriz Stix-Brunell clowning around in rehearsal as a stormtrooper.
