This Guy Will Change How You Think About Ballet Dancers


If someone asked you to picture a ballet dancer, chances are you’d think of a little girl in a pink tutu (or resident badass Misty Copeland), but 23-year-old Erik Cavanaugh is out to change that.

The dancer and choreographer posts stunning Instagram videos that prove dance is for everybody (and every body type). Cavanaugh’s message is encouraging whether you’re a dancer yourself or just an uncoordinated superfan of So You Think You Can Dance. We also love that one of his life goals is to bust a move with Ellen (hi, us too!). Check out some of his videos below.
