Ballerinas around the world are not happy with Kendall Jenner.
For all the good Billy Elliott and Black Swan did for ballet, the reality ‘star’ managed to kill it in about 60 seconds.
Modelling for Vogue España, Jenner brought her mediocre dance moves to the dance studio.
I don’t even know what I just watched.
And everyone – including a hell of a lot of ballerinas – seemed to agree.
While Kendall Jenner may have been going for the innocent childlike dress-up look, she ended up pirouetting herself into major hate.

Ballet is such high art and coming from someone who's spent years in the studio, it's almost offensive to see Kendall act "cute" in it.

Kendall Jenner pretending she knows anything about ballet is truly the most offensive thing of 2016…

Others were quick to point out that, not only were her dance moves horrendous, they were also dangerous:
The Kendall ballet vogue shoot has me heated. They should of used a real dancer. Instead it's her lookin like her ankles might break any sec

Most ballet supply stores wont even let u buy pointe shoes w/o approval from ur instructor so clearly Kendall Jenner is way out of her lane.

While they all have a point, I’m sure if Vogue was going for grace and not celebrity endorsement, they probably would have hired a real ballerina.
But that still doesn’t take away from the fact that Kylie can’t dance for shit.
