Corpse de Ballet Reincarnated
Proving one’s worth at audition with an impossibly audacious feat that is likely to result in suicide. The number of angels qualified to dance on the head of a pin,

Reincarnated because we have recreated this from a previous shoot we did approximately 10 years ago.
It was still just as difficult! The ballet shoe has a slippery silky surface and also the glass does. The combination meant that I just kept gliding straight off the top or as the glass is upside-down, the bottom!
