In the Opening Ceremony of New York Fashion Week 2015, people witnessed more than the beautiful models and hot new designs that they expected. Professional ballet dancers disguised in high-fashion attire were interspersed throughout the catwalk, and turned heads as they—with great purpose—tripped and fell down the runway, turning a model’s biggest fear into a beautiful and graceful performance. Why did the directors choose dancers for this fake-out? The answer is simple: dancers and models have a lot in common.
Both dancers and models require poise, beauty, a captivating stage presence, a strong sense of balance, and—perhaps most importantly—proper technique. Like dancers, a model’s every move is deliberately made and carefully executed. Walking down the runway is nothing like a pedestrian stroll down the street; it requires skill and expertise.
