Fatspiration Friday: Big Ballet

Big Ballet is a Russian* ballet company composed entirely of dancers weighing no less than 100 kilos.  The company's choreographer, Yevgeni Panfilov formed Big Ballet to prove that dancers can be excellent at any size, and challenging the increasingly more slender aesthetic in professional ballet.  Sadly, I find the taste of Big Ballet's costumer quite questionable, but what can you do.

As a bonus: Dawn French as the Vicar of Dibley dances badly

*I have seen a few blog posts and articles implying this company should not be taken seriously since it is obviously just some weird Russian thing.  Apparently the writers were unaware that ballet is, to put it very mildly, kind of a big deal in Russia.
