That’s what you get when you mock dancers! If you snide them, they’ll come right back to you and show what they’re made of.
The drama of the ballet comment started last Thursday when Lara Spencer of Good Morning America made an ignorant remark about Prince George taking ballet classes saying “we’ll see how long that lasts” while holding in her laughter.
Of course, this led to a number of pissed off people telling her how horrible it is that she would shame a 6-year-old boy for doing something he enjoys. Spencer apologized for her comment in an Instagram post by writing, “My sincere apologies for an insensitive comment I made in pop news yesterday. From ballet to anything one wants to explore in life, I say GO FOR IT. I fully believe we should all be free to pursue our passions. Go climb your mountain—and love every minute of it.”
Now Travis Wall, the choreographer of So You Think You Can Dance, came up with his own little snarky plan to get back at Spencer. He and other dancers plan to perform ballet right outside of the Good Morning America building.
The dancer took to his Instagram story to post the news and offered anyone else to join.
“We are taking ballet class outside Good Morning America,” he said. “Bring your tights, bring your shoes, you can dance in sneakers, maybe a coffee.” He added that Lara may show up if it comes down to it.
“We are starting at 7 a.m. Anyone is welcome,” Wall continued. “If we have some youth, some kids, you guys come out. We want to show them boys dance too and we’re just here to all celebrate each other and have a beautiful time outside Good Morning America.”
Sounds like it’s going to be a fun day, but since Spencer already apologized, chances are likely she won’t be too headstrung about it. Regardless, dancing with Wall on the street outside of a building sounds like a truly beautiful time!
