    Model Dancers

    I did a search to see if this thread had already been started, but found nothing.

    So here's a fun little sidetrack. How many models are also dancers of one kind of anothers, let's throw in gymnasts too. Pictures of them showing these skills are appreciated. Here a couple that I know of:

    Katie Zeller
    Du Juan
    Irina F

    I know there are a lot more out there because the two body types are very similar so many dancers turn model if they don't want to go pro.

    Have fun!

    Manette, who is that model?

    Du Juan was a ballerina, a good one from what I can tell. Thanks for the karma!

    I read many times that Naomi Campbell and Shalom Harlow studied dance full-time students before being discovered.

    It seems a lot of models were aspirant ballet dancers before turning to modeling due to their height issue...

    Wow! There sure are a lot of them. I think that being a dancer adds a lot of grace to some of the poses these models pull off. Not to mention they can do things that other models caaaan't. Like pulling their leg above their heads o.o .

    The only one name I can think of, off the top of my head is Charlize Theron. She was a model before, right ?? And a ballerina in an even more distant past...
    Then, Elena...
    There's one more ballet dancer turned model in one of my recent magazines, but I haven't got to scan it yet. And, there was one more girl from Russia, who had been a competing figure skater before she became a model.

    And, one more relatively recent new face, Russian-born Canadian-raised model, who used to be a rhythmic gymnast before...
