Ballet Zaida

About Ballet Zaida

Ballet has typically been viewed as a pastime for the privileged, but professional ballet photographer Oliver Endahl has made it his mission to bring the sport to the masses via various @balletzaida social accounts, with over 650K followers on Instagram alone. In his photographs and videos, Oliver brings ballet out from behind the curtain and into the light for all to see through his use of colors, textures, lighting, and scenery. His modern spin on the classical art form has recently earned him collaborations with SoundCloud and Etsy, and helped him launch a line of high-fashion leotards in conjunction with thedancewearproject.com.
