Kendall Jenner’s ballet ad slammed by ballerinas
Kendall Jenner is a supermodel, a Hollywood socialite, but she failed to impress social media with her ballet.
Jenner put on her ballet shoes and pranced for a ballet advertisement shoot for Vogue España.
In the one-minute clip, Jenner, donned different tutus as she tryed to tip-toe and frolic around a dance studio.
“I just want to be able to continue to do what I’m doing…be my friends and live a good life. Who doesn’t?” the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star said.
Jenner’s “lack of enlightenment” about ballet perplexed social media users and hardline ballerinas. According to them, Vogue España should have featured a real prima ballerina and not someone who lacked training and experience. Also, they weren’t hesitant to assert that Jenner, 20, needed to perform “proper” stunts.
The Kendall ballet vogue shoot has me heated. They should of used a real dancer. Instead it's her lookin like her ankles might break any sec

Ballet is such high art and coming from someone who's spent years in the studio, it's almost offensive to see Kendall act "cute" in it.

Even “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller commented on the issue.
“I cannot be a fan of this shoot,” Miller said in a deleted Instagram comment, cited by Fox News. “There are so many amazing dancers in the world… Kendall Jenner is not one of them! Shame on Momager, Kris Jenner! She never made these kids take [a] dance class. She better gets North West to the @aldcstudiola before it’s too late.” Gianna Francesca Catolico
