We know what y'all want for Christmas...reaction videos of course! And pointe shoes too duh. This week, Josephine virtually met Lindsey Stirling. This amazing Youtuber-Violinist-Dancer has been on the platform for a while now, with amazing covers to popular songs. This week: Santa Baby. In this cheeky classical-pop rendition of the holiday favorite, Lindsey dons some pointe shoes. And so, Josephine had to take a look. Are you a Lindsey Stirling fan? What do you think of her use of pointe shoes in this music video? Let us know!
Happy holidays y'all. You asked. We listened. It's Josephine being traumatized by the internet...for the 13th time. What shall the ballet algorithm bring us today? Comment "flamingo" below if you enjoyed this video!
Are ballerinas perfect? In this episode of 'Josephine Reacts,' a popular youtube compilation of "ballet mistakes" was presented to the pointe shoe fitter.

On this episode of 'Pointe Shoe Fitter Reacts,' Josephine reacted to a Dhar Man video featuring Jordan Matter and Lizzy Howell. This skit video is actually based on Lizzy Howell's experience as a plus sized dancer. Although some elements may be dramatized, it gives insight to her specific experience and story. And one of our favorite dance photographers, Jordan Matter, makes an appearance as well! Do you know Lizzy's story? It's certainly a lesson we can all learn from.
After a hurricane and 12 hour train ride, we made it to made it to New York successfully! And to celebrate, Josephine watched the latest Rybka Twins video!

Did the 12-hour train ride affect our sanity? You'll have to watch to find out!
