ABT's Dancers Were SO ON This Halloween
Recovering from a major sugar hangover right now? Here, this’ll make you feel better: Gaze in wonder at the Halloween costumes American Ballet Theatre’s dancers pulled out yesterday, which are seriously, seriously on point(e).
Yes, we know—we already did our “best of” Halloween roundup. We already talked about the amazing Maddie thing that Heidi Klum did on “Ellen.” But some late-arriving social media posts make a strong case for ABT as the official winner of Halloween 2016.
We’ll start with the sweet: husband-and-wife team Stella Abrera and Sascha Radetsky as Yoko Ono and John Lennon. So many #relationshipgoals:

Let’s progress to the (literally) cheeky, aka principal Jeffrey Cirio as Tom Cruise in Risky Business:

Most committed goes to Halloween queen James Whiteside in A+ drag as Natalia Makarova, complete with pointe shoes:

Soloist Cassandra Trenary‘s Ethan Stiefel/Cooper Nielson impression—including a Charlie cameo!—was truly inspired:

And the all-around winner? That’d be Erica Lall, who ABSOLUTELY NAILED Aunt Viv from “Fresh Prince,” good lord:

Bonus: While we didn’t get a peek at Misty Copeland‘s costume, she did repost this adorable little ballerina-in-the-making’s Misty ensemble. D’awwwwww!
