Follow Friday: The Pedestrians en Pointe Instagram Account Is Our Newest Obsession
Can’t get enough ballerina pics on your Instagram feed? Us either. That’s why we’ve spent the better part of our Friday scrolling through the Pedestrians En Pointe account. But don’t let the pedestrian part fool you. The dancers captured by photographer Alex Fine are European pros from companies like The Royal Ballet, English National Ballet and Dresden Semperoper Ballett.
Much like New York City-based Ballerina Project (another of our must-follows), Pedestrians En Pointe captures ballerinas showing off the best of their technique in everyday settings—this time, in London. Pairing some Pointe Magazine-featured dancers like ENB’s Isabelle Brouwers and Precious Adams with iconic settings like Big Ben and Portobello Market, we rounded up some of the coolest pics from the page to serve as your weekend studio (or travel) inspiration.
