The coronavirus pandemic has definitely brought out the good in humankind with people helping each other in every possible way. Recently, a group of ballerinas reportedly joined hands to help dancers in need of financial assistance. In a bid to raise funds, Misty Copeland, the principal dancer with American Ballet theatre collaborated with fellow dance Joseph Phillip to launch the 'Swans for Relief' initiative.
The group consisting of 32 ballerinas from 14 nations, made a visual performance which was later shared on the internet. The dancers have also set up a gofundme page to raise money for the dancer who is now struggling to pay rent or buy food. The mesmerising dance performance has racked up 371557 views on YouTube. It has also gained popularity on Twitter with people lauding the dancers for their performance and their kindness.
"For us, the idea of 32 beautiful and strong women from different walks of life coming together to speak the common language of dance felt so unifying and empowering in these uncertain times", the gofudmepage said.
