Dancers James Whiteside and Isabella Boylston have done it again, and we’re officially obsessed. The ballet duo — whose past videos have featured choreography set to megahits like Lady Gaga’s Chromatica — have taken Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” and put their own pointed spin on it. In his caption on Instagram, Whiteside even notes that “Ballet + WAP = the weird part of the internet.” But it’s not! It’s beautiful! And we wish the clip was longer!
Whiteside and Boylston are both principal dancers at New York’s American Ballet Theatre and frequently take to Instagram to show off various dance routines. They even created an IGTV series of dance classes over the past few months to share their love of dance with all their followers. Though their classes have ended, you can still find them on Instagram, and once you’re up to speed, you too can dance to “WAP.”
Well, let’s not get carried away. This clip may be short, but this routine is not easy — we’d like to see anyone attempt a cartwheel and land on pointe the way Boylston does. If this dance looks simple, it’s only because these two are so damn good that their moves are flawless. We would even go so far as to say that, if Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B made another video, Whiteside and Boylston should be cast.
